Development Sprints

Edit page
# Monday, April 13th 2015 – Thursday, April 16th 2015 Development sprints are a key part of PyCon, and a chance for the contributors to open-source projects to get together face-to-face for up to four days of intensive learning, development and camaraderie. Newbies sit with gurus, go out for lunch and dinner together, and have a great time while advancing their project. - What's New with the Sprints by Naomi Ceder - What are development sprints & why you should attend! by Kushal Das - What's so special about Sprints? by Naomi Ceder What's a sprint? -------------------
Come for PyCon, stay for the sprints!
PyCon Development Sprints are four days of intensive learning and development on an open source project of your choice, in a team environment. It's a time to come together with colleagues, old and new, to share what you've learned and apply it to an open source project. In the crucible of a sprint room, teaming with both focus and humor, it's a time to test, fix bugs, add new features, and improve documentation. And it's a time to network, make friends, and build relationships that go beyond the conference. PyCon provides the space and infrastructure (network, power, tables & chairs); you bring your skills, humanity, and brainpower (oh! and don't forget your computer). Who can participate? -------------------- **You!** All experience levels are welcome; sprints are a great opportunity to get connected with, and start contributing to your favorite Python project. Participation in the sprints is free! Who can run a sprint? --------------------------- **You!** If you've never run a sprint before, the [In-Person Event Handbook]( is an excellent guide. What's the schedule? ------------------------- Sprints run all day from Monday April 13th to Thursday April 16th at the Palais des congrès de Montréal.
If you're new to sprints, or need some inspiration, OpenHatch is hosting an Introduction to Open Source workshop on Sunday April 12th from 5:30pm to 8:30pm in room 511. Be sure to register!
