Communication

Costs

Participants should plan for the following costs:

  • Travel to Minneapolis/St. Paul
  • Accommodation for x nights

Individual preparation

Sponsoring

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).

An international community/code sprint for OSGeo will take place May 14-17, 2019.

We expect about 50 developers from all over the world to come from various OSGeo projects. Whether desktop application, geospatial library, metadata catalog or web mapping: be sure to find products in the list that you use. The 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.

This years' sprint will take place at the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities in Minneapolis and will be hosted by U-Spatial and organized by SharedGeo and members of the local OSGeo user group (TCMUG).

In addition to the costs of providing the technical infrastructure and space, food and drink for the developers represents the main cost. Morning/afternoon meals and drinks during the day are planned. In addition, we hope to provide several evening meals and social events.

In order to cover these costs we would be overjoyed to accept offers of sponsorship!

What we can offer:

  • Your logo on top of the community sprint website as well as on all official documents used during the sprint
  • Acknowledgement in all sprint related emails
  • 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

So...

  • get your company talking to the top project developers.
  • encourage 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 tosprint@lists.osgeo.org directly.
