The Code Sprint provides the opportunity for projects to get together to make plans, work on new features, write documentation and generally collaborate. We provide comfortable facilities with all the power and wifi you could need, it’s up to the individual projects to decide what the time is used for.
While a code sprint is obviously a place for developers it’s worth remembering that it’s not just about writing code – as we all know a project has many needs including documentation, testing, and providing feedback. What better way to give feedback and give back to the project that you love than to spend a day with the project’s developers. There are roles that need to be filled, no matter what your expertise.
When & Where
At FOSS4G 2013 we’re looking to provide dedicated facilities the day after the main conference (Sunday 22nd September) as well as throughout the event in the main venue.
Further details and show your interest on the OSGeo wiki.

We also have a hackathon running on 17th & 18th September which is also free to attend. See the geohack pages for details.
