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 hotel 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 cheap hosting solution.
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 (oliver dot courtin at oslandia dot com) directly.
