My personal highlight of the Mapnik sprint last weekend was the sense of community. After working on the Mapnik project and codebase for several years, having the chance to meet Artem and the other brilliant people using Mapnik was a phenomenal thing.
Richard Weait planned the event but could not make it in person, but here we are at a pizza joint local Andy Allan picked out. We are raising a glass to Richard, "We-EAT!"
Iván Sánchez arrived the second day of the sprint to work on Spreadnik and brought a ton of joy and laughter. I think I captured the only moment during the whole sprint he was not smiling!

Artem and Dane - united at last!
