Looking for venue in Montreal for OSGeo Code Sprint 2011

(Version française)

We are currently looking for a venue in Montreal, located within walking distance of hotels and restaurant, for the organization of OSGeo's Montreal Code Sprint 2011.

This will be OSGeo's third North-American Code Sprint. Each year, over 20 OSGeo project developers and contributors meet for 4 days to work face to face on advancing their software projects. The first North-American sprint took place in Toronto in March 2009, the second was in New-York in February 2010, and it will be in Montréal for 2011.

Here is what we are looking for:
  • Room(s) with working space (tables and chairs) to comfortably accommodate between 20 and 40 developers. Everyone brings their own laptop, so no computer/workstation is required
  • Fast and reliable Internet connection
  • Availability for 4 consecutive days over a weekend, sometimes between January and March 2011 (e.g. Friday to Monday, Saturday to Tuesday, etc.)
  • Location within walking distance of restaurants and hotels, and easy to get to from the airport by shuttle or taxi since several participants will be flying in.
If you know of a company, organization, university or college with space that could suit our needs, then please contact me with all the information via email at dmorissette@mapgears.com. Even if you are not 100% sure about the availability of a given option, please do not hesitate to forward your suggestion with a contact name as soon as possible so that we can consider it in our planning.

We can offer visibility or pay a reasonable fee in exchange for the use of the space.

Please forward this request through your network of contacts...

Thank you in advance!
