Django sprint at EuroPython 2008
We'll be holding another Django sprint at EuroPython 2008 in Vilnius, Lithuania. And at the same time worldwide through IRC. The sprint days are from thursday July 10th until saturday July 12th.
This sprint will be focussed on getting the newforms-admin branch ready to be merged into trunk (see: this thread on google groups). More details will be posted here and announced on django-dev as we get closer to the time of the sprint.
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.
Volunteers looking to get an early start should take a look at the SprintIdeas page.
Preparing for the sprint
Here are a few easy things you can do ahead of time to make sure your time is spent effectively:
- Read our "Contributing to Django" document.
- Install the "trunk" version of Django (aka the Django development version).
- Create an account in our ticket system. This will allow you to claim tickets you're working on.
- Familiarize yourself with our ticket system and reports.
- Get an IRC client, so that you can join us in the channel #django-sprint on Freenode.
