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 :)


All participants are welcome and you don't need to register or attend FOSS4G to attend the Code Sprint (registering here on the wiki is appreciated for planning purposes like coffee and food). Some projects will prefer attendees who have previously engaged with the project and already have a working development environment on their computer (i.e. not all project will welcome helping you set up your development environment).
