Get together project members to make decisions and tackle larger geospatial problems (as done last year at the Boston Code Sprint 2013 and previous years: Island Wood (2012), Montreal (2011), New York City (2010), and Toronto (2009)). This code sprint is targeting members of the "C Tribe" (e.g., MapServer, QGis, GRASS, GDAL, Proj, PostGIS, MapGuide, OpenLayers). Other tribes are welcome to join the sprint, of course, but we hope that "C Tribe" members will give this event special consideration.


The City of Vienna MA 14 gladly provides the location for the Vienna Code Sprint for up to 60 sprinters in their very new office called STAR 22.

The venue is not far from the center of Vienna (~25min via train and subway) and can be reached easily from the Vienna airport via train.

Dates and Times

March 24-28 2014

Note: March 19-21 FOSSGIS Berlin

Duration: Full week




A hotel block is planned to be negotiated. Details will be provided here.


Participants should plan for the following costs:

  • Travel to Vienna
  • Accommodation for four nights

Individual Preparation

  • Bring your own computer
  • Install git, subversion and the compiler tools, and come with a working development environment if possible


  • Is the Vienna Code Sprint just a coding event?
    • Yes, a coding and documentation event. It is a working session for people who are already participants in open source projects.
  • Will it be possible to present new projects during this event?
    • No, this is not a presentation-oriented event. People will get together in small groups and work on areas of mutual interest within their projects.

Social Activities



  • Skiing: The idea is to find a not too far away place the weekend after the sprint. Please add your name if you're interested: Stephan Meissl
