GeoNode OpenGeo Fall Code Sprint with Boundless

Boundless is hosting a GeoNode Code Sprint at the Landing Zone in New Orleans, LA, USA from November 17th to 20th in conjunction with ITHACA who will be hosting in Turin, Italy. Both locations will engage with each other on a daily basis as discussions will be organized around triaging tickets, documentation, and more.

The sprint will begin on Tuesday 17 November at 9:00AM with GeoNode project presentations. The agenda will swing into action for the remainder of the week with work on specific projects, modules, bug fixing, and website enhancements focused towards finalizing the 2.4 release.

The sprint will conclude on Friday with an open discussion focused on GeoNode Improvement Proposals (GNIP) and tickets that have to be addressed prior to the next release. GeoNode users are invited to join the discussion to provide feedback on existing features as well as share ideas on new features.
