Code Sprint

Also this year, after the online conference, there will be the OSGeo community sprint.

Participation is free of charge and anyone involved or interested in getting involved in OSGeo community projects is welcome.

This year we will try to offer the format an hour with the developer, where we ask seasoned community members to donate time for welcoming new members and introduce them to different projects or guide them through the setup of the development environment or translation tools and get started on the Foss4G journey.

You can choose to contribute to one or more projects. The sky is the limit. There’s always plenty to do – and it’s not all about programming. Translation, documentation, feedback, discussions, and testing are very important for projects! Conference registration is not a prerequisite for participation in the code sprint.


The code sprint will be held on 27-28 of August.


The codesprint will be hosted at the University of Florence.

More information about the rooms and social channels for the codesprint will be notified later.

Registered Attendees

The code sprint is free of charge but we kindly ask you to write down your name for better planning.
