What are Sprints?

PyCon Development Sprints are up to four days of intensive learning and development on an open source project(s) 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 US 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, on Sunday, May 19th, there will be an Introduction to Sprinting Workshop that will guide you through the basics of git, github, and what to expect at a Sprint. The Introduction to Sprint Workshop takes place in Room 402 on Sunday, May 19th from 5:30pm - 8:30pm EST.

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 and included in your conference registration. Please go to your attendee profile on your dashboard and indicate the number of sprint days you will be attending. 

Mentors: we are always looking for mentors to help new sprinters get up and running. Reach out to the sprint organizers for more info. 

Which Projects are Sprinting?

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. Attendees, check here to see if which projects have signed up so far.
