December 2007 Django sprint

We'll be holding a Django sprint on Saturday, Dec. 1st, 2007; this page has all the details.

What is a sprint?

Basically, a Django sprint is an excuse for people to focus their undivided attention, for a set time frame, on improving Django. It's a focused, scheduled effort to fix bugs, add new features and improve documentation.

Anybody, anywhere around the world, can participate and contribute. (See the "How to contribute" section below for details.) Most contributors will be at their own homes/schools/workplaces, but a number of people will gather together in person for camaraderie, improved communication and the other benefits of face-to-face interaction.

If you've never contributed to Django before, this is the perfect chance for you to chip in.

How to contribute

It's easy: Pick something to work on and do it. All sorts of tasks are available, from hard-core hacking to improving documentation to fixing small bugs.

Of course, with more than 100 people around the world signed up to help, good communication is essential. We're currently planning the best way to manage contributions.

Have a look at the SprintIdeas page if you would like some ideas about what to work on.
