OSGeo Code Sprint 2014 in Wien vom 24. bis 28. März 2014

Webseite (auf Englisch): http://vienna2014.sprint.osgeo.org

Seit einigen Jahren organisiert die Open Source Geospatial Foundation (OSGeo) [1] einen jährlichen Code Sprint sozusagen ein Come-Together des "C Tribes" der OSGeo Projekte. Dabei treffen sich die federführenden und verantwortlichen Entwickler von Projekten wie MapServer, QGIS, GRASS, GDAL, PostGIS, PDAL, pycsw, u.v.m., um neue Vorhaben zu diskutieren, sich auszutauschen, in praktischer, gemeinsamer Arbeit Code-Probleme zu lösen, usw. einfach um den Zusammenhalt dieser bedeutenden Entwickler-Communities zu stärken.

Nach Toronto [7], New York [6], Montreal [5], Island Wood [4], und Boston [3] wird der Code Sprint im Jahr 2014 erstmalig in Europa und zwar in Wien Station machen [2]. Neben knapp 70 Entwicklern die ihre Teilnahme für dieses Jahr bereits angekündigt haben werden mehr als die Hälfte der Mitglieder des OSGeo Foundation Board of Directors vertreten sein unter anderem der Vorsitzende Jeff McKenna.

"Es ist eine große Ehre so viele namhafte Entwickler von OSGeo Projekten in Wien begrüßen zu dürfen." freut sich Stephan Meißl, Organisator der Veranstaltung, und meint weiters: "Gleichzeitig ist es eine hervorragende Gelegenheit für die Open Source Community in Österreich speziell in Wien sich zu vernetzen und international Präsenz zu zeigen."

For several years the Open Source Geospatial Foundation (OSGeo) [1] has been organizing a yearly Code Sprint, a gathering of the "C Tribe" OSGeo projects. Leading developers of popular software projects like MapServer, QGIS, GRASS, GDAL, PostGIS, PDAL, pycsw, and many more get together to discuss new ideas, hack, decide, tackle large geospatial problems, etc. simply to have fun.

In 2014 after Toronto [7], New York [6], Montreal [5], Island Wood [4], and Boston [3] the Code Sprint stops in Europe for the first time, more precisely in Vienna [2]. Besides almost 70 registered developers, more than half of the members of the OSGeo Foundation Board of Directors will be present including the current president Jeff McKenna.

"It is a great honor to be able to welcome so many well-known OSGeo developers in Vienna." states Stephan Meißl, organizer of the event, excitedly and continues: "At the same time it is an excellent opportunity for the Austrian, in particular the Viennese, Open Source community to network and show international presence."

Jeff McKenna, OSGeo's President, says, "The Foundation wishes to thank the Viennese community for organizing such an important international event, and welcoming software developers and leaders from all over world into your community. The benefits to the geospatial Open Source community from these 5 days of software development in Vienna will be felt by hundreds of thousands of users all over the world, for years to come. This event is one of the most important geospatial events of the year."
