FOSS4G 2010 Code Sprint

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.

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...
