PyCon is not just a conference to hear people present on Python and
Python applications. It's also a place to meet and work with
colleagues from around the world.
Consider the following opportunities for collaboration:
A sprint is a multi-day session of intense development organized
around extreme programming (XP) ideas such as pair programming.
There will be four days, March 19-22, before the regular conference
to sprint on a variety of projects. To see what sprints are
If you would like to lead a sprint, feel free to add the sprint
to that page. If you want to participate in a sprint, visit
a sprint-topic page and add your name to the list of attendees so
that we know how many people are coming.
If you have a question about the sprints, feel free to drop me
- Open Space
Open space is a part of PyCon designed to provide opportunities for
collaboration. There are two kinds of open space at Pycon, quiet
and noisy. There will be a quiet room provided throughout the
conference for people to access the network and to quietly hack with
others (e.g. pair program).
There will also be noisy rooms for people to have discussions or
give informal presentations. The noisy rooms will host up to two
presentations or discussions at a time. We'll provide the
opportunity to sign up for 30-minute time slots. We'll allow sign
up for half of the time slots before the conference. There will
be a posted schedule with spaces to sign up for the remainder of
the time slots during the conference.
I'll provide more information on the open space schedule soon,
after we finalize the rest of the conference schedule.
