After thirteen successful years, we'll continue the OSGeo "hacking" event, but this will be a special edition of the event. Due to current Covid crisis, traveling to the Italian monastery (see map location) is a challenge. That's why we're hosting the event as an online meeting.
The event will take place during the whole week (5 days), although the emphasis will probably be Monday to Friday for most participants. Please contact me if you have questions about this event (Jeroen Ticheler)

The Open Source Geospatial Foundation (OSGeo) encourages code sprints for developers of open source GIS software to work together in person as a team, and build up relationships between projects (https://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/Category:Code_Sprints).
A project focused code sprint for is booked for 29 June - 4 July 2020 happening online.
We expect 15-25 international participants from across the geospatial community, including OSGeo projects. This sprint is a chance for project teams to work on RnD, maintenance challenges, and any activity which benefits from the quick turn around of in person communication. This is your chance to meet with the core developers of the projects, get a deeper insight into the software, and participate in the development.
While we do not have the usual costs of technical infrastructure and space, we do hope to provide some food and drink (takeout) for the developers to attend a social video chat and cater any meetings that are setup. Any funds raised beyond event costs are maintained by OSGeo to help our open source community.
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?)
