Django sprints

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 test, 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.

For more information Brett Cannon gave an excellent introduction to Sprinting talk at PyCon, and a video of it is available.

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