Code Sprint - what's that?
A code sprint is about getting a group together to work on Open Source software, sitting around a table and sharing ideas. It's not just about writing code, as you know a project has many needs including documentation, testing, and providing feedback. What a better way to give feedback and give back to the project that you love than to spend a day with the project's developers. There are roles needed to be filled, no matter what your expertise.
With such a short timeframe (one day) you should probably use this page to set a specific goal for your project. But don't worry, if all you get done is actually sitting at the same table with the project's developers and talking about the next release, that is also great :)
Where & When
The day after the main conference (Sunday 22nd September) has been set aside for the Code Sprint. There is also a plan to provide facilities throughout the event in the main venue.
We also have a hackathon running on 17th & 18th September which is also free to attend. See the geohack pages for details.
