I have been asked a couple times "what is this code sprint you keep
talking about" :-)
A code sprint is usually organized by a group that is using an open
source project and wants to see something done. They fly the developers
to a single location and feed them for a couple of days with the
necessities of the hacking life (internet, caffeine, electricity). The
communication that happens from face to face hacking usually lasts the
project for a year or more. You see this a lot in projects like Drupal
That is my informal definition :-)
Here is what the foss4g2007 site says:
> An aprés-conference "Code Sprint", where project teams get together
> for valuable face-to-face planning and concentrated programming time.
If you or your project is interested contact me (or better yet add
yourself to the FOSS4G wiki page on the subject):
So far we got:
- GDAL / Mapserver
- GeoNetwork / Metadata Madness - looks to be cross project - cool!
