Giuseppe's PlanetPostgreSQL
Last week I was pleased to attend Code Sprint 2016 in Paris, organised by the OSGeo Foundation: it has been an opportunity for many GIS users from all over the world to get together, discuss and actively work on many open tasks of some of the major open source frameworks on GIS.
