Our last code sprint in Bolsena - Italy was in 2019. And this year we are back! The code sprint is planned for an extended period of 10 days, giving all that participate a chance to work and meet a little bit longer.

The OSGeo "Code Sprint" event in Bolsena is in an Italian monastery (see map location), the photos and videos: 2008-video, 2009-video and 2010-video. The monastery is overlooking Lago Bolsena and offers space to about 25 people in small bedrooms :-) . It is one of the coolest places for such an event. Quiet, isolated, simple and serene. Have a look yourself, including looking at the photo gallery. For what the food concerns, we cook elaborate meals you will definitely enjoy :-) . There's a large dining space, but we will eat outside overlooking the lake if weather permits (very likely in June).

The options on offer are:

  1. Participate for 5 days (first or last 5 days of the event) - 550€/person including food and lodging (Excluding VAT)
  2. Participate for the full 10 days - 750€/person including food (except the weekend) and lodging (the whole period) (Excluding VAT).

Food (breakfast, lunch and dinner) is included in the price. As in previous years, we will go out for a city visit and a dinner on one of the evenings (also included).

Please contact me if you have questions about this event (Jeroen Ticheler)

How to arrive to the Monastery

By Plane

The closest airports are the Rome airports (Ciampino and Fiumincino). From Rome to the monastery there is 135 km aproximately.

By Car (from Rome)

There are several options to rent a car on the airports.

It could be interesting to rent a private bus or several cars to move from Rome to the Monastery and from the Monastery to Rome.

By Train and Bus

There is no railway to Bolsena. From Fiumicino to Rome you can take the train METROPOLITANO FR1 to Roma Termini.

From there you can take the train to Orvieto (https://www.inorvieto.it/) and get a taxi (http://www.orvietotaxi.it) or take the bus. There are 2 buses a day from Orvieto to Bolsena, except on Sunday, there is NO bus on Sunday. More info on https://www.rome2rio.com/map/Orvieto/Bolsena#r/Bus. From Bolsena main street to the Monastery is approximately 1 km.

Alternatively you can take a bus all the way from Rome to Viterbo and other bus from Viterbo to Bolsena.

On foot

You can walk from Orvieto to Bolsena via routes such as the one shown here - about 17km if you take the shortest route. :-) You'll need the map as signage along the route can be tricky.

Sponsoring

The Open Source Geospatial Foundation (OSGeo) encourages code sprints for developers of open source GIS software to work together in person as a team, and build up relationships between projects (https://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/Category:Code_Sprints).

This sprint is a chance for project teams to work on RnD, maintenance challenges, and any activity which benefits from the quick turn around of in person communication. This is your chance to meet with the core developers of the projects, get a deeper insight into the software, and participate in the development.

  • Your logo on top of the sprint website as well as on all official documents used during the sprint
