Django sprint in the Triangle area of North Carolina, November 12-13 2011

We'll be holding a Django development sprint at Caktus Group, 209 Lloyd St Suite 360, Carrboro, NC 27510 (map) on November 12th and 13th, 2011.

We'll be there at 9am both days to open the doors. It's a tradition to go out for drinks after the sprinting winds down, perhaps around 4 or 5, but this may be earlier or later depending on the general momentum of the sprint.

This will be a general sprint focused on getting features ready for the 1.4 release. It doesn't require any previous experience and, if you don't have prior experience contributing to Django, it is the perfect opportunity to start.

The sprint is being hosted by Caktus Consulting Group. If you have any questions, contact us. Please note that our office no longer resides in Carrboro Creative Coworking (but we moved right next door). If you need help finding the location or have other questions on the day of the sprint, just give us a call at 919-951-0052.

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 Caktus office, but if you can't make it you can also help out in IRC (#django-sprint on

You can find all the gory details on the Sprints page.


If you plan to participate on-site, please RSVP via Eventbrite so we get an idea of how much food to plan for. If you can't make it to the Caktus office but would like to participate online, add your name to the online roster.

Getting there

The Caktus office is located in downtown Carrboro and is within walking distance of many restaurants, bars, and shops. The address is:

209 Lloyd St, Carrboro, NC 27510

After turning on Lloyd St, the Caktus will be on your left past Rice's Glass and Carrboro Coworking. The sign reads "The Lloyd Street Court," and we're in the 3rd building. The entrance to the parking lot is just past the three green buildings. If space is limited, there's additional city parking behind Carrboro Coworking (turn left immediately before the 3 green buildings and continue straight to the gravel parking area).

We're in suites 360, 370, and 380. Please note that the office is on the second floor and only accessible by stairs.

Sleeping arrangements

If you're traveling to get here and need accommodations, there are a number of hotels a short drive (or a 15-20 minute walk) away. The Courtyard Chapel Hill (431 W Franklin St, 27516 - 919-883-5058) seems to be the closest.
