2021 Joint ASF – OGC – OSGeo Code Sprint


The Apache Software Foundation (ASF), Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC), and Open Source Geospatial Foundation (OSGeo) invite software developers to a joint Virtual Code Sprint on the 17th, 18th and 19th of February 2021. The code sprint will run from 07:00am EST until 05:30pm EST each day. Register for the Code Sprint on the form below.

A Code Sprint is a collaborative and inclusive event driven by innovative and rapid programming with minimal process and organization constraints to support the development of new applications and candidate standards.

To prepare for the code sprint, a webinar will be held on the 12th of February 2021. The webinar will set out the scope of the code sprint and provide an overview of the participating groups.

The goal of the code sprint is to advance support of open geospatial standards within the developer community, whilst also advancing the standards themselves. Therefore, the code sprint will enable software developers to focus on projects that implement open geospatial standards for a period of three days. The code sprint will cover multiple ASF, OSGeo projects and OGC standards - including OGC API standards. All OGC, OSGeo and ASF projects and working groups are invited to participate. This Sprint is open to all participants, even if you are not active members or contributors to the efforts of the hosting organizations.

There will be an opportunity for joint discussion with other participants, as well as daily briefings from each project and working group. However, the majority of the time will be spent in collaboration between participants in active coding.

A GitHub repository for the code sprint has been created at https://github.com/opengeospatial/joint-ogc-osgeo-asf-sprint-2021

OGC is an international consortium of more than 500 businesses, government agencies, research organizations, and universities driven to make geospatial (location) information and services FAIR - Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable.

OSGeo is a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to foster global adoption of open geospatial technology by being an inclusive software foundation devoted to an open philosophy and participatory community driven development.

Since 1999, The Apache Software Foundation has been shepherding, developing, and incubating Open Source innovations 'The Apache Way'. The ASF's all-volunteer community comprising 813 individual Members and 8,000 Committers on six continents steward 200M+ lines of code, oversee 350+ Apache projects and their communities, and provide $20B+ worth of software to the public at 100% no cost.

This Sprint is open to the general public, even if you are not active members or contributors to the efforts of the organizers.

Registration closes at 12:00pm EST on February 16th, 2021.
