The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) invites software developers to the October 2021 OGC API Virtual Code Sprint, which will focus on the following draft OGC API specifications:
To ensure that all new OGC API standards are as developer-friendly, usable, and as mature as possible before release, each draft specification is being put through one or more code sprints to test and improve their readiness before starting the OGC standards approval process.
The code sprint will offer an opportunity for joint discussion between participants on technical issues, requirements for application programming interface (API) solutions and findings from the prototyping of OGC API standards. The majority of the time will be spent on collaboration between participants in active coding.
OGC has been developing a new generation of standards for building web API solutions that make location-referenced information more findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable. These draft specifications come from OGC’s effort to create modular, resource-oriented API standards that use OpenAPI for describing interfaces that offer location-referenced information over the web. A pre-event webinar will take place on 19 October to outline the scope of work for the code sprint, and provide an overview of the candidate standards.
