22nd Developer Meeting in A Coruña, Spain

International QGIS User Conference

Link to official page http://2019.qgis.es/

The International QGIS User and Developer Conference wants to be the referential conference, and a meeting point for the family of users and developers orbiting around the QGIS project, in order to gather experiences and sharing knowledge about QGIS. The language of the Conference is English.

QGIS Developer Meeting

A QGIS Developer Meeting is a volunteer-driven event where contributors to the QGIS project from around the world get together in a common space - usually a university campus.

The event is normally three days in duration and we hold two such events each year. During these events, contributors to the QGIS project take the opportunity to plan their work, hold face-to-face discussions and present new improvements to the QGIS project that they have been working on. Everybody attending the event donates their time to the project for the days of the event. As a project that is built primarily through online collaboration, these meetings provide a crucial ingredient to the future development of the QGIS project.

The event is planned largely as an ‘unconference’ with minimal structured programme planning. We do this to allow attendees the freedom to meet dynamically with those they encounter at the event. Those sessions that are planned are advertised on the event web page and we try to enable remote participation through video conferencing software. Although our hosts are not funded and donate the working space to us, we show our appreciation by making one of our software release’s splash screens in honour of that host, which is a great way to gain exposure of your institution and country to the hundreds of thousands of users that make use of QGIS.

Code of conduct

When attending our meetings we ask you to please abide by the QGIS diversity statement and Code of Conduct. We also ask attendees to respect local laws, customs and culture and be good ambassadors for the QGIS project.

Period and location

  • The user conference will take place from 04 to 06 of March, 2019.
  • The developer meeting will take place from 07 to 10 of March, 2019.

Mentor streams

If you are coming to a QGIS Developer event for the first time, you may be a little lost and confused about what you should do when you get there. For this event (and hopefully future events if it works well), we will have mentors to help you get started in the QGIS Community. If you would like to be a mentor for a topic not listed, add a new table below. If you need mentorship, add your name to the appropriate table below:

Expression editor autocompletion improvements

The QGIS Expression builder offers autocompletion support since QGIS 3.4. This vastly increases productivity while working with the expression editor. However, a lot of functions still don't show up their parameters get_feature(...) instead of get_feature(layer, attribute, value).

This is also a unique possibility to get insights into the internals of the QGIS expression engine.

In this stream, we will learn how we can migrate functions so they show up with their parameters. If at the same time function descriptions and documentation can be improved, even better.
