Hello from Musanze, Rwanda, a short 10 km from one of two remaining populations of Mountain Gorillas where I’ve spent the last couple of weeks with Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund International and students from University of Rwanda helping with important research in support of gorillas and biodiversity in the Virunga Massif.
But, this post is not about these things (more on these later) but a call to all those in the Free and Open Source Community to come and join the OSGeo Community Sprint in Minnesota this May!
What is a community sprint, you may ask? Well, it’s like a code sprint in that there will be code geeks working away at improving the software of various OSGeo and OSGeo caucusing projects, but also folks working on the equally important work of documentation, translation, tutorials, and other parts of the OSGeo is ecosystem. More code is like more cowbell, so I’m calling on the coders but also the other folks in our community to join.
