Code Sprint

Venue: Boston, Massachusetts, United States

This year, once again, we are following the old tradition of hosting a code sprint right after FOSS4G. More precisely, we offer a setting so that individual projects can meet for their code sprint. Since projects benefit from each other as well, the code sprint will naturally be held conjointly at one place. The code sprint will be held Saturday August 19th, 2017 at District Hall (

Participation in the code sprint is free of charge and all folks currently involved or interested in getting involved in OSGeo community projects are welcome.

This is open to all who wish to participate in one or more projects. There’s always plenty to do – it’s not all about programming. Translation, documentation, feedback, discussions, and testing are also very important for projects! Registration with the conference is not a prerequisite for participation in code sprint.

If you plan to attend, please signup in the table below so we have ample time for planning of snacks and drinks!


One thing we’d like to ask you: with an approx. 200 participants anticipated, the WLAN capacity will naturally be exhausted at some point. Please be sure to avoid huge on-site downloads of data, as this could impact the work of others. Thank you!

The Codesprint Organizing Team is looking forward to your coming!

In summary:


  • Saturday August 19th 9AM - 5PM
