Code Sprint & Mapping Party

The FOSS4G-SOTM Argentina 2017 organizing committee is happy to host a code sprint on the Saturday of our week-long event, that runs from 23 October to 28 October. The event will also include a mapping party with OpenStreetMap, so the goal is to work on plugins, for QGIS, OpenLayers, Leaflet, as well as other OSGeo software projects of course.

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, packaging, feedback, discussions, testing – are all very important to projects, so everyone is cordially invited to attend the codesprint!

This is also a great opportunity to meet and discuss your issues and ideas with project leaders from various OSGeo projects, such as MapServer, pgRouting, etc.; often these discussions are the most important part of a "code sprint" - as your ideas and feedback can be relayed directly to the project's steering committee later. Face-to-face is often much better than mailing lists or Telegram for these kind of discussions.

Please, to help organizers plan accordingly, if you are interested in attending be sure to add your name (and your project if known) below. Thank you.

The Code Sprint & Mapping Party Organizing Team is looking forward to you joining the fun on Saturday!
