23rd Contributors Meeting in Bucharest

Period and location

The QGIS contributors meeting (QCM) will take place from 23 to 25 August, right before FOSS4G Bucharest 2019. The first two days of FOSS4G, 26-27, are the workshop days. For those who will stay for the FOSS4G but are not busy with the workshops can easily continue the QCM. The FOSS4G workshops will take place in the same building as the QCM.

So, the meeting will probably take place for the full period, from 23 to 27 August.

The venue is the University of Bucharest, one of the oldest education institutions in Romania, founded in 1864. More specific, the Faculty of Geography.

What is a contributors meeting?

A QGIS Contributors 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.

Mentor streams

If you are coming to a QGIS Contributors 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:
