See what projects are sprinting and add your own!

The sprints are one of the best parts of PyCon. It's a great environment to meet up with old friends, make new friends, and hack on open source projects. Each year, projects around the Python world sketch out their next releases, introduce new contributors, and write a lot of code.

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.

Check out the list of projects that are sprinting and add your own at https://us.pycon.org/2013/community/sprints/projects/. Feel free to sign up under any of the projects and show your interest. That'll help leaders plan for who's going to be there and who's interested. Signup isn't required -- you're more than welcome to browse the rooms and ask who's working on what and join whatever project interests you.
