A Code Sprint, or Community Sprint, is an event in which GRASS project members get together and code, translate, fix bugs, test etc. It is a good occasion to make important decisions about the project and tackle larger problems. Many times, members of other projects are also involved, so that it is a good opportunity for bridging technologies.

  • Q: Is the GRASS Community Sprint just a coding event?

A: It is mainly a coding and documentation event. It is a working session for people who are already participants in the GRASS project and/or are committed to improving the GRASS project. On demand, however, we can do some presentations of current working GRASS implementations and new upcoming features to spread the idea of Open Source GIS software.

  • Q: Is the GRASS Community Sprint for developers only?

A: Not at all! Anybody can help with testing, checking out bugs and fixes, documentation and more.
