OSGeo's Montreal Code Sprint 2011 - Only two weeks away!

(Version française)

Yes, time is flying! It's only two weeks away! All the pieces are coming together smoothly for a very exciting OSGeo Code Sprint in Montreal the week of March 15 to 18, 2011.

As I am writing this, 27 OSGeo project developers and contributors from North America and Europe have signed up to meet and work on MapServer, GDAL/OGR, PostGIS, libLAS, ZOO Project, TinyOWS, GeoPrisma, OpenLayers and GeoExt.

Most of the attendees are from the C Tribe this year, and unfortunately the Java and JavaScript Tribes are essentially missing after making a great presence last year. Come on guys, it's been great to sprint with you last year and we'd like to have you back!

Thank you to our sponsors who are supporting food and fun for the sprinters as they work hard and play hard for four productive days:
(Note: There is always room for more sponsors. If you are interested please see the details here and contact me at dmorissette at mapgears.com)

And also big thanks to the Communauté Métropolitaine de Montréal (CMM) for hosting us in their wonderful conference room and providing internet access for free. I'm sure the sprinters will appreciate the view of the city from the 24th floor!

Finally, there is still room for a couple more sprinters. We only ask that you be knowledgeable and willing to get your hands dirty working for one of the projects that is represented. If you plan on participating then hurry up, visit the wiki page to get all the information and make sure you add your name to the list of participants in the wiki and join the "tosprint" mailing list to get the latest updates!
