Sprinting at PyOhio 2009

New for 2009, PyOhio is going to have development Sprints on Friday and Saturday evenings. There is no additional cost to participate in Sprints and while the location has not been specifically nailed down, they will either be at the conference site or very close by. We are currently looking for Sprint Leaders (that's you!) to help manage at least a few different Sprint topics.

What are Sprints?

There is no running involved, and no phone companies are attached to this activity.

Sprints are a relatively free-form and ad-hoc environment where projects can commonly even spring up on site, but we'll try to seed the pot with some interesting projects.

What does a Sprint Leader have to do?

Primarily, your responsibility would be to explain to likely sprinters what your project is and what work needs to be done. If you have a python software project that would benefit from a few developers banging out new features, doing bug fixing, testing, writing documentation, etc., then you are a candidate for being a Sprint Leader!

If you have any interest in being a sprinter on a topic (even if you're not willing to lead that topic), or even better, taking charge of a given Sprint topic, please check out our Sprints page or contact us at
