What are Sprints?

PyCon Development Sprints are up to two 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.

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 opportunity and infrastructure; you bring your skills, humanity, and brainpower (oh! and don't forget your computer).

For those that have never attended a development sprint before or want to brush up on basics, we have a video of our Introduction to Sprinting Workshop that can walk you through the basics of git, github, and what to expect at a Sprint.

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. You do have to be a registered attendee of Pycon to participate in the Sprints (NOTE: this policy is slightly different than years past, due to the guidelines put in place for the 2022 conference). 


Mentors: If you would like to mentor beginners during the Sprints feel free to sign up to help with mentoring.


Project Leads: Any Python project can signup and invite sprinters to contribute to their project. If you would like your project to be included, add your project to the list
