FOSS4G 2018 Community Sprint
Venue: Tanzania DataLab (Dar Es Saalam, Tanzania)
- Bagamoyo Rd, Dar es Salaam, Tanzania
This year, once again, we are following the old tradition of hosting a code sprint right after FOSS4G 2018. The code sprint will be held Saturday September 1rst and Sunday 2nd, 2018.
Participation in the code sprint is free of charge and all folks currently involved or interested in getting involved in OSGeo community projects are welcome.
This is open to all who wish to participate in one or more projects. There’s always plenty to do – it’s not all about programming. Translation, documentation, feedback, discussions, and testing are also very important for projects! Registration with the conference is not a prerequisite for participation in code sprint.
If you plan to attend, please signup in the table below. If you are unable to sign up, you are still welcome to attend the Code Sprint and we'll add your name when you get to the Sprint.
Please note that the QGIS Developer Meeting is in the week before the main FOSS4G conference
- Wednesday 22. - Sunday 26. August https://github.com/qgis/QGIS/wiki/DeveloperMeetingZanzibar2018
The Codesprint Organizing Team is looking forward to your coming!
- Saturday September 1rs 8AM - 5PM
- Sunday September 2nd 8AM - 5PM
- Venue: Tanzania DataLab (Dar Es Saalam, Tanzania)
The Code Sprint does not cost any money. For us it makes planning easier if we know who is coming. So please leave your Name and the days you will attend the sprint.

Please add yourself
Getting the most of a code sprint takes a lot of prep. Please use this area to decide on a topic, sort out a plan of attack.
Please keep in mind that the FOSS4G conference is an outreach event. Some of the "new" volunteers are learning about open source for the first time, consider listing some activities (and perhaps having a mentor on hand to facilitate).
Pleased to welcome new developer! Experience with Java and Maven recommended.

All are welcome to join us at the sprint! Users, implementors, writers, translators, coders—we'd love to see you there, particularly if you're new to ODK. We'll help get you started, connected to the ODK community, and contributing in whatever way you want to contribute!
If you're interested, please post and introduce yourself at the ODK Forum: https://forum.opendatakit.org/t/odk-sprint-at-foss4g-sep-1-and-2/14675
(To edit this wiki page, you need a OSGeo wiki account, and registration involves a delay to get approved. So, we're encouraging everyone to post on the ODK Forum, where you can register for a new account instantly.)
- Users: We'd love to learn how you use the geo features in ODK, watch you use them, and get your feedback on making them better. We have some new changes to geo functionality on the way and are looking for feedback on them too!
- Implementors: How do you deploy ODK for geo data collection in your projects? Or how would you like to deploy it, if you could? Tell us about your workflow, what makes it hard and what could make it easier!
- Writers: Let's improve the documentation and website! We have lots of tasks that need doing, large and small, to help people get started using ODK. Don't worry if you're new—it's always really helpful to get fresh eyes to point out sections that are jargony or hard to navigate for newcomers.
- Translators: Let's make ODK Collect work in Swahili, Somali, and Amharic and reach whole new groups of users! We could use help with translations to these languages, as well as reviewing our existing partial (35%) translations to Swahili and the differences between Kenyan Swahili and Tanzanian Swahili.
- Coders: We're making improvements to ODK Collect for geo data collection, and also have lots of small improvements and bugfixes that we could use help with. New to developing on ODK? No problem! Install Android Studio on your laptop, and we'll help you get set up to contribute to ODK.
