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 Community Sprint and all "Tribes"
are included/welcome. Leading developers of projects like GDAL, PostGIS,
MapServer, GeoServer, GRASS, QGIS, PDAL and many more get
together to discuss new ideas, hack, decide, tackle large geospatial
problems & more & simply to have fun.
Last year the OSGeo Community Sprint was held with success in Minnesota .
In 2020 the OSGeo Community Sprint will come again to Europe after
Paris (2016)  and Bonn (2018). This makes is possible to embed
European developers and users. The tradition started in 2009 in Toronto .

The OSGeo Community Sprint is open to all who wish to participate in one or
