Django sprint in Los Angeles (Santa Monica), CA, June 19th-20th 2010 will be hosting a Django sprint on the weekend of June 19th and 20th, in beautiful and sunny southern California (no guarantees on the weather, but we'll do our best).

We'll get started at 9:30am both mornings and wrap up around 4 or 5. We're located pretty close to the Santa Monica Promenade and the Pier, so expect post-coding activities and beer.

With Django 1.2 just released, there are a large number of possible focuses for any sprint work you'd like to do. We're going to focus on performance and optimization, but if you want to do new feature work, we won't stop you.

Sprints are a great place to start contributing to the Django project, no previous experience is necessary. Just show up.

What's a sprint? How do I participate?

See Sprints for information about how sprints work, how you can participate, etc.

Anybody, anywhere around the world, can participate and contribute. We'll be gathering in person at the Mahalo office, but if you can't make it you can also help out in IRC.

Getting there

The Mahalo building is located at:

902 Colorado Ave.
Santa Monica, CA 90401

It's right off the Lincoln exit on the 10 freeway.

Sleeping arrangements

Coming soon. I'll try to see what couch/air mattress space are available. Email me at jammons /at/ if you're coming from out of town and want on the waiting list. Or if you live in town and wouldn't mind hosting someone.


  • Mahalo will be providing working space and lunch (at least one lunch from our amazing chef).
