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 (Saturday, September 13th 2014) has been set aside for the Code Sprint.

The sprint will be in the Eliot Center (OSM) along side WhereCampPDX.
