Bring together project members to make decisions and tackle larger geospatial problems as in previous years:

Dates and Times


  • Welcome event: evening of Mon, Feb 22 (see below)
  • Sprint: Tues, Feb 23 - Fri, Feb 26 (4 days), from 9h30 till 19h00


To be noticed: For security reason, you have to be registered (on this Wiki page) to be allowed to enter in Mozilla place.

We could use three kind of spaces:

  1. The main code sprint room (with seats and tables, video projection, paperboard)
  2. A "bar" room, just beside the main one (for meals, breaks, T-Time...)
  3. Meeting room (allowing group to talk without making too many noise in the main room)

Few rules to follow:

  1. Keep in mind to carefully close Mozilla outside door (aim is to not allow any outsider to get in).
  2. No meal, nor drink in the main sprint room (plain water is tolerated).
  3. Don't waste Internet bandwith (as we share all the same Wifi connection).
  4. Food and drinks are available in the bar room, you could use freely OSGeo ones (but not Mozilla ones).
  5. As others events could be organized on evening, we could so be asked to tidy the main room before we leave.


Sylvain Beorchia will be on the sprint on D3 (Thursday), with a graphic design focus.

(He designed this Code Sprint logo, yeah the chicken one, and this other OSGeo event one http://osgeo.asso.fr/foss4gfr-2016/ or Oslandia logo among others... )

If you’re interested to got a (new) clean and fresh logo for you project, just say it so:

  • Paul Norman (couple potential projects)
  • Luca Delucchi

Project Plans

(i.e what do you wish/want/plan to work on during the sprint ?)

Break ideas

If you need to take a break, some ideas close to the sprint place:






We are planning for attendance of ~50. Please add your name and the projects you are planning to sprint and note the likeliness of your attendance.

If you want to play, we also open a Paris urban photos contest. Weird and arty points of view are welcome ! On Flickr tag is: ParisCodeSprint2016Urban


Participants should plan for the following costs:

  • Travel to Paris
  • Accommodation for four nights (including breakfast)

All other costs - food, outings and entertainment - should/will be covered by the sponsors

Hotel and co

Center of Paris is indeed quite small, the sprint place quite central, and metro network quite dense.
So no special need to be that close from the sprint place (anywhere else in Paris could also be fine, with less than 30-45' by tube).

However, nice hotels, quite close to the sprint place:

A common way to find a discounted room in Paris is to use: booking.com

Paris is also well known to became an AirBNB city.
Could be so a way to share (big) flat, among some sprinters.

And there's also hostels, for those who want/need to find a cheaper hosting solution.

Individual preparation

  • Bring your own laptop
  • Install GIT and compiler tools, and come with a working development environment
  • For North American folks take an European power adapter, for Swiss and Italian ones depends on ground slot ( http://wikitravel.org/en/File:Plugs.png )
  • If your laptop need it, video export adapter to DVI and/or VGA
  • Optional: something to take pictures (camera, smartphone, small tablet...)


We have three sponsorship levels:

  • Gold: >= 2500 €
  • Silver: 1500 €
  • Bronze: 750 €

We encourage sponsors to support nutriment and entertainment for the sprinters as they work hard and play hard for four or five productive days. Contributions will be put towards lunch, snacks, and dinner costs for the sprinters, and potentially bringing in sprinters who might otherwise be unable to attend. Any surplus at the end of the event will be turned over to OSGeo or used for a future code sprint.

Sponsors will receive the following honors:

  • Your logo at the top of this page
  • Mention in all of our public communication
  • Our undying gratitude, which comes in handy when you least expect it (Remember that feature you wanted...)
  • And as extra, for Silver and Gold: Kakemono in the event room (if you provide it)

To sponsor, please contact Olivier Courtin (olivier dot courtin at oslandia dot com) directly.
