QGIS Contributors Meetings are volunteer-driven events where contributors to the QGIS project from around the world get together in a common space. 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 program planning. We do this to allow attendees the freedom to meet dynamically with those they encounter at the event.
