This week, four developers (Eric Lemoine and Tom Payne for Camptocamp, Tim Schaub and Andreas Hocevar for OpenGeo) are getting together in Vienna to focus on OpenLayers 3 again, in a code sprint together with developers from GeoServer.
During a 1-week sprint with seven developers in June and in follow-up discussions, an agreement has been found on the flavor of the external API and the general architecture of OpenLayers 3. This week, we can build on the core that we already have. The main goal in addition to implementing features is to create a project infrastructure with a simple build process and good documentation, so other developers can more easily look at and work with the new code, and start to contribute.
You can follow our progress on http://github.com/openlayers/ol3.
A big THANK YOU goes out to the Research Group Cartography at the Vienna University of Technology, for hosting the sprint. And another one to Camptocamp and OpenGeo for sending developers and covering travel and accommodation costs.
