Hello, This mail is a call for sponsorships to organize the « 3.0 OpenLayers code sprint ». This event enables European OpenLayers community and OpenLayers developers from around the world to meet.
The likelihood of an OpenLayers code sprint (for version 3.0) is taking shape. It is scheduled to take place for 4-5 days during the month of March 2009 in France, in a remote and isolated part of the Alps (a quiet place to achieve better work on this major release!). The cost of the stay (travel expenses excluded) is about 750 € per person. As organizers, we want to cover all incurred expenses during the event as well as the maximum of travel expenses i.e. a budget of about 10'000 € for 6 persons. Only the time spent at the event would then be at the charge of the developers (and/or their respective organization/company). Any kind of support is welcome... A PayPal account is an easy means to carry out a sponsoring activity, even a small one, as an individual or as a company's endorsement. For a larger sponsorship, please do not hesitate to contact me or Virginie Jourdan directly – virginie.jourdan at camptocamp.com : we can suggest a communication partner plan (based on OpenLayers community's sponsoring activities). Thank you for supporting this initiative which will encourage the promotion of French and European Open Source Geoinformatics within the OSGeo.
