Every once in a year it is getting quiet in the Crate Offices in Dornbirn and Berlin, when all the people are gathering somewhere in the mountains. It's Snowsprint time.
This year a couple of guys from all over the world (Azerbaidjan, Sweden, Scotland,...) are joing on us in Hittisau in the middle of the Bregenzer Wald.
People were working on a CLI Top tool.
You can see this urwid based tool here.
Others on a Crate/Typescript/Any-Other-JS-Framework-You-Can-Imagine based task board that wasn't inspired by any other tool at all.
Here's the tool at work.
Besides we were working on a massive Azure Cluster, the Mesos or Jool Integration of Crate, a benchmarking tool and some dev tools and the documentation.
Paul were blogging about it.

The snow part
Hey, it's the snowsprint. So skiing is an essential part. This time there were only two injuries. (Good luck, Adrian)
Long walks through the snow to local huts with cheese dumplings and schnaps.
And trips to the Cheese shop - which you have to do whenever you visit the Bregenzer Wald.
