Taking place on the second floor of the Hyatt, the hotel attached to the Santa Clara Convention Center where the tutorials and talks are happening, the sprints run from Monday March 18 through Thursday the 21st.
Following the closing address on Sunday, from 4:30-5:00 will be an introduction to how the sprints work, where they'll be, and introductions to the projects who are attending given by the leader of the sprint. It's a great chance to get a quick look at what's happening and who's participating.

After that, the sprints are on! Many sprints start right there at 5:00 with the projects heading to their respective areas over in the Hyatt, getting started on their planning, hacking, and whatever else they're up to.
