On April 15-16, GEM actively participated for the 2nd time in a Geonode Code Sprint with the aim of finding synergy in developing and improving GeoNode. GEM is leveraging GeoNode as the core open source tool for the development of the OpenQuake platform.
“I would consider the sprint to be a success and a very good use of time. We found many points of convergence with the other participants, for example the use of leaflet and d3.js technology used for data visualization” – says Ben Wyss, one of the GEM representatives at the workshop.
The added value for participating in the event was to continue contributing back to some of the open source tools that GEM is using, and to keep fueling the open source collaboration through a real commitment to GeoNode’s progress.
