Following the conference, we hope you will join us for a FOSS4G NA Code Sprint and Unconference hosted by Red Hat in their Raleigh Offices. This is a great opportunity to work on active open source geospatial projects and collaborate with other developers in the field. “Code sprints” are an opportunity for an otherwise distributed team to get together in the same place and tackle larger problems that benefit from having all team members together in the same room. Code sprints are invaluable for helping an open source software project make substantial forward progress.
This year, the FOSS4G NA Organizing Committee welcomes open source geospatial developers from around the world to Raleigh for this year’s FOSS4G NA 2016 Code Sprint immediately following the conference. Sprinters will most likely work on a broad range of open source geospaital projects, including PostGIS, PDAL, MapServer, GeoTrellis, Cesium, GDAL, libspatialindex, and many others.
This event is also an unconference. An unconference is a platform for attendees to meet to discuss topics of importance to them. Similar to Birds of a Feather discussions, attendees can pitch ideas or topics to discuss in small groups This is a great opportunity to continue conversations that were started at FOSS4G NA.
A big thank you to our gracious hosts, Red Hat, who have invited us to their lovely space for this two day event.
The code sprint will be located at Red Hat on Friday, 6 May 2016 at 10:00 AM - 7:30 PM Saturday, 7 May 2016 at 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM
