Django sprint(s), Nov 13 2010

NEW: Ideas for thing to work on during the sprints: SprintIdeas

Django users from Argentina (UTC-3) will be holding one-day Django sprint(s) on Saturday November 13:

  • Facultad de Matemática, Astronomía y Física Universidad Nacional de Córdoba, Córdoba
  • mindpulse, Roque Perez 4263 B7, Capital Federal, Buenos Aires
  • (undefined place), Rafaela, Santa Fe
  • anue, Santa Fe Balcarce 522 "A", Rosario
  • (add your location if you plan to host/sponsor another sprint)

There will be another sprint at Berlin, Germany (UTC+1) the same day.

According to the Django roadmap, Django will be on post-alpha bug fix/minor feature implementation season for the 1.3 release, so this sprint will largely be focused on fixing bugs to help with that release planned for January 2011. That said, if you want to do feature work we won't discourage people who are interested in working on new features for releases post 1.3.

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. In particular:

  • Make sure you have an account in the Django trac (this one) so you emailaddress isn't published and available for spammers harvesting.
  • We will be in #pyar on IRC (freenode servers), and possibly somewhere else (but the meeting point is #pyar). Make sure you have an IRC client and an account configured.

Anybody, anywhere around the world, can participate and contribute. If you can't make it you can also help out in IRC.

  • Córdoba: 10AM - 7PM.
