Starting build cycle for OSGeoLive 13 and call for translators and documenters

  • 28 February 2019

Are you interested in joining our Open Source GIS experience? The build cycle for the next OSGeoLive release, 13.0, is going to start. The final version is planned to be ready at 30th July 2019 in time for FOSS4G 2019 in Bucharest [2]. Have a look at our schedule for the detailed steps [3].

Till then we have many challenges - from simple to challenging, to help describe and train people in the value of Open Source GIS.

For this release, we hope to help OSGeo Community projects join OSGeoLive, and work out how we can keep within our size constraints.

"We'd love to build a cloud version of OSGeoLive for this release. It would make OSGeoLive, and OSGeo software much more accessible. It seems elusively achievable, but we haven't worked it out yet. If you think you could help, we'd love to hear from you.

Are you a programmer or packager with experience in one of the Open Source GIS applications. Are you interested in helping update a project to the latest version.

Are you a technical writer interested in making FOSS4G accessible to all?

Join us at OSGeo Code Sprint 2019

There will be the OSGeo Code Sprint 2019 at University of Minnesota - Twin Cities from 14th to 17th May 2019 [1]. Some people from OSGeoLive team will be there. We'd love to see you, whether you are new to Open Source or an experienced old timer.
