Development Sprints

**Monday, May 6, 2019 – Thursday, May 9, 2019** and free to attend (you don't need a PyCon registration to come to the sprints)! Development sprints are a key part of PyCon, and a chance for the contributors to open-source projects to get together face-to-face for up to four days of intensive learning, development and camaraderie. Newbies sit with gurus, go out for lunch and dinner together, and have a great time while advancing their project. - <a href=""> Why not join the sprints this year at PyCon?</a> by <a href="">Naomi Ceder</a> ### Sprint Sponsors <div style="text-align: center;"> <img src=""> <img src=""> </div> We are very grateful for our sponsorships so we can supply our attendees with food and beverages! What's a sprint? ------------------- <div style="float: left; margin: 15px"> <a href=""><img src="" alt="Come for PyCon, stay for the sprints!" width="200"/></a> </div> PyCon Development Sprints are four days of intensive learning and development on an open source project of your choice, in a team environment. It's a time to come together with colleagues, old and new, to share what you've learned and apply it to an open source project. In the crucible of a sprint room, teaming with both focus and humor, it's a time to test, fix bugs, add new features, and improve documentation. And it's a time to network, make friends, and build relationships that go beyond the conference. PyCon provides the space and infrastructure (network, power, tables & chairs); you bring your skills, humanity, and brainpower (oh! and don't forget your computer). For those that never attended a dev sprint before or want to brush up on basics, come to our our Introduction to Sprints workshop Sunday, May 5th! For those that want to sign up to mentor beginners at the Sprints, [you can sign here (FORM TBA)]. Who can participate? -------------------- **You!** All experience levels are welcome; sprints are a great opportunity to get connected with, and start contributing to your favorite Python project. Participation in the sprints is free! You don't need a Talks and Events PyCon registration to come to the sprints. Who can run a sprint? --------------------------- **You!** If you've never run a sprint before, the [In-Person Event Handbook]( is an excellent guide. Please edit this page and add your project according to the instructions below. What's the schedule? ------------------------- Sprints run all day from Monday, May 6th to Thursday, May 9th. <a id="SprintRooms"></a> Where will the sprints be? ------------------------------- The Sprints will take place in the Convention Center. Each Sprinting project will claim its own room or if the room is large enough, it will share the space with other Sprinting Project. Here is a list of all of the rooms we will be using during the 4 days [TBA]: Which projects are sprinting? ---------------------------------- If you are interested in leading a sprint, **please add your project here:** **1.** Please [edit this page]( and add a brief description of your project to the list below.
