Organizing Contacts

Code Sprint - what's that?

A code sprint is usually organized by a group that is using an open source project and wants to see something done. They fly the developers to a single location and feed them for a couple of days with the necessities of the hacking life (internet, caffeine, electricity). The communication that happens from face to face hacking usually lasts the project for a year or more. You see this a lot in projects like Drupal etc...

Motivation and Direction

A day, a code base, and your imagination?

On the Friday after the conference, a big room with internet connectivity, lots of tables and flip charts will be arranged. Projects can use the time and venue for organizational discussions, development roadmaps, and group resolution of thorny issues in their code bases.

Is this your First Sprint? Here is some background information to get you started:

I would love to get some traction on expanding the "Tim Tutorials" into a more generic and robust framework for stand alone apps. Focussing on the Python bindings would be my preference. (Aaron Racicot)
