As many readers are aware, OGC has been making a concerted effort over the past few years to integrate better with the community implementing OGC standards. OGC members and staff believe that by involving those who actually need to code against standards early in the process, we can develop standards that are both more responsive to market demands and more accessible (read: “easier to understand and implement”) for developers. Hence, why not try a hackathon?
