FOSS4G 2011 Code Sprint
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 :)

How to get there from the Sheraton
The easiest way to get there from the Sheraton is to catch the free shuttle bus along 16th Street to Larimer, then it's about a half mile walk from there (7-10 minutes) - just take a left on Larimer and keep going straight into the campus. More detail to come shortly on how to get to the exact rooms etc.
