Call for Participation PyCon DC 2004 Sprints March 20-23, 2004
The Python Software Foundation is sponsoring four days of sprints before PyCon -- Saturday through Tuesday. We invite developers to attend the sprints. We will provide space and network connectivity for developers who want to work on open source projects.
A sprint is a two or three day focused development session, in which developers pair in a room and focus on building a particular subsystem. A sprint is organized with a coach leading the session. The coach sets the agenda, tracks activities, and keeps the development moving. The developers work in pairs using XP's pair programming approach.
We have several sprints already planned, including - Docutils and reStructuredText - Plone - Twisted topics - Zope 2 and Zope 3 - Python core development
If you are interested in participating in a sprint, please send mail to the appropriate sprint coach or to me. Developers of all experience levels are welcome. We are also looking for coaches for other sprints topics; if you have an idea, post it in the Wiki or send me an email. The PSF will waive PyCon registration fees for coaches of sprints with at least two attendees.
Hope to see you there, Jeremy Hylton PyCon sprint chair
