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


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...)

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