From March 24 to 28 OSGeo developers will gather in Vienna for the
annual OSGeo Code Sprint of the "C Tribe" OSGeo projects. Vienna was
selected to continue a series of code sprints after Toronto, New York,
Montreal, Island Wood, and Boston.

Leading developers of popular software projects like MapServer, QGIS,
GRASS, GDAL, PostGIS, PDAL, pycsw, and many more get together to
discuss new ideas, hack, decide, tackle large geospatial problems, etc.
simply to have fun. Almost 70 developers have already registered to a
full week of concentrated work and fun.

We want to thank our generous sponsors supporting the Code Sprint.
