Individual preparation


The Open Source Geospatial Foundation (OSGeo) has a long tradition of organizing code sprints for developers of Open Source GIS software. (https://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/Category:Code_Sprints).

Simultaneously with the FOSSGIS Conference 2018 in Bonn an international code sprint of the OSGeo will take place from 19 to 25 March 2018. We expect about 80 developers from all over the world to come from various [1] projects. Whether desktop application, geospatial library, metadata catalog or web mapping: be sure to find products in the list that you use. Thus, the Code Sprint is also an opportunity for your developers to meet with the core developers of the projects, get a deeper insight into the software and participate in the development.

The code sprint will take place at BaseCamp in Bonn. During the FOSS4G 2016 in Bonn we have already organized a code sprint at this location, in which about 100 developers worked on the open source projects every day. (https://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/FOSS4G_2016_Code_Sprint)

In addition to the costs of providing the technical infrastructure, the cost of food and drinks for the developers is the main cost. A buffet at lunchtime and drinks during the whole day are intended.

So far, the code sprint is already sponsored by OSGeo and FOSSGIS e. V..

In order to cover the costs, we would be very pleased about further sponsors!

What we offer:

  • Your logo on top of the websites of the Code Sprint 1 as well as on all official documents around the Code Sprint
  • Mention in all code sprint related mails
  • Our undying gratitude, which comes in handy when you least expect it (Remember that feature you wanted...)

Our sponsorship levels:

  • Gold: >= 2500 USD
  • Silver: 1500 USD
  • Bronze: 750 USD


  • get your company talking to the top developers of the scene!
  • enable your GIS developers to take advantage of this opportunity, there is no better opportunity to learn!
  • support the software you use - you benefit immediately.

Thank you very much!

Contact: To sponsor, please contact codesprint@osgeo.org directly.
