FOSS4G 2011 took place in Denver, Colorado, USA from September 12-16.

FOSS4G is the global and annual conference hosted by OSGeo in venues all around the globe. It attracts the best Open Source geospatial software projects and their developers making it the gathering of the tribes. FOSS4G addresses the needs of users and developers alike and this year intends to also bridge the gap between the suits and the geeks by explaining how the business models can be used to address the needs of small and large organizations alike.

Code Sprint

Each year sees a growing number of people attend the post conference code sprint. This little video was taken during the code sprint after the Denver event in 2011 which was mildy disrupted by a false fire alarm.

For some reason at one point during our code sprint at FOSS4G in Denver the alarm went off and all had to leave. Ten minutes later we could get back in and continue.
