The Open Source Geospatial Foundation (OSGeo) has a long tradition of
organizing code sprints for developers of Open Source GIS software.
For several years the Open Source Geospatial Foundation (OSGeo)  has
been organizing a yearly Code Sprint, a come-together of the "C Tribe"
OSGeo projects - now we call it OSGeo Code Sprint. Leading developers of
projects like GDAL, PostGIS, MapServer, QGIS, PDAL, and many more get
together to discuss new ideas, hack, decide, tackle large geospatial
problems & more & simply to have fun.
In 2018 the OSGeo Code Sprint will come again to Europe after Vienna
(2014)  and Paris in (2016) . This makes is possible to embed
European developers and users.
The tradition started in 2011 with Toronto , then New York ,
Montreal , Island Wood  and Boston . And went to Philadelphia
in 2015  and last year to Daytona Beach (2017) . Find a list of
code sprints at .
OSGeo Code Sprint 2018 in Bonn
This year the international code sprint of the OSGeo will take place
from 19 to 25 March 2018 simultaneously with the FOSSGIS Conference 2018
in Bonn. We offer a setting so that individual projects can meet for
their code sprint.
The code sprint will take place at BaseCamp in Bonn. During the FOSS4G
2016 in Bonn we have already organized a code sprint at this location,
in which about 100 developers worked on the open source projects every
day. (https://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/FOSS4G_2016_Code_Sprint). It is a
really awesome location. Codesprint and accommodations are combined in
one hall and you will live in a caravan, bus or cabin.
Working zones will be created for you in the breakfast area and
hallways. Healthy and not-so-healthy catering of drinks and snacks will
be provided by us. Participation in codesprint is free of charge.
However, overnight stays will have to be reserved and paid for by
BaseCamp is an indoor campground and offers different caravans, night
sleepers, Airstreams, a Trabant, Volkswagen transporter and other places
If you prefer to stay in a hotel - no problem. Bonnox Boardinghouse is
close-by. And you also find many great hotels in Bonn.
Book your room soon
As the accommodations are as well available to FOSSGIS 2018 participants
we will make an effort to make advance booking possible for you a few
days ahead, to ensure you have the opportunity to sleep on-site and wrap
up the evenings jointly.
Therefore, please book your accomondation as soon as possible via the
booking system http://www.bonn-region.de/events/fossgis.html
This is important for us, not only for the planning of snacks and
The OSGeo Code Sprint is open to all who wish to participate in one or
more projects. There is always plenty to do – it’s not all about
programming. Translation, documentation, feedback, discussions, testing
– all this is also important for projects so everyone is cordially
invited to attend the codesprint!
The Codesprint Organizing Team is looking forward to your coming!
