Alpine City Strategic Sprint 2019

Alpine City Sprint

The annual collaborative software development event in the heart of the Alps - Innsbruck/Austria - established 2015.

A sprint in the Python world is what hackathon or hackfest is called in other big open source software projects. The concept is simple: work & social life.

The main focus is on the core development for the Enterprise CMS Plone and on the application server Zope. That is why every year high-skilled software developers from all over the world meet in Tyrol.

We do not only work together but dine together and enjoy our free time together.

I want the Alpine City Sprint to provide the optimal environment for software development and the developers themselves. It is important to me that the developers feel completely content. Christine Baumgartner, Organizer


Push Plone 5.2 towards Zope 4 & Python 3

We brought Plone on its path to Python 3 and finally get it running.

We visited the OEWF Spacesuit Lab and its Mars Mission Support Center.

It ended with a Snow Day tobogganing down through white forests at Wildschönau.

Plone Core, Zope 4, Python 3

We worked on porting Zope 4 to Python 3 and Plone to Zope 4, the next generation auf Zope. We visited the Brenner Base Tunnel construction site. Digging a 64km hole through the central alps feels similar to digging in 20yo code bases.

Plone - dig deep, tidy up

Five long days of talking, coding, poking into the depth of Zope2 and also after 5 days of fun, wine, beer and delicious food, great views on and from our mountains, some culture, lots of WTF and opening of pandoras boxes.

Plone 5.0 fixing and GTD

We worked mainly on tasks to get Plone 5.0 out of the door and also fixed add-ons to work with Plone 5.0. In order to cool down like a atom, we visited the IQOQI and had a Hack'n'Dine at Seegrube with a great view down to Innsbruck.
