What is a Python sprint?
Open source software, including Python and most Python projects is developed as a joint effort of thousands of programmers. Programmers like each of us, that spend some time contributing bug fixes, new features, documentation, tests...
A sprint is an event where open source programmers meet, and work together. Traditionally, sprints mainly happened at the end of conferences, that core developers attended. But our approach is to have them often, and open to all levels.
Are sprints for me?
Short answer: Yes. Sprints are for eveyone. Programmers new to open source are more than welcome. One of our main goals is to help people get started. In most events, we have an introduction on how to contribute to open source.
Core developers and experienced contributors are also very welcome. Not only to contribute during the sprints, but also to mentor other people, and to help planning the sprints.
Diversity and inclusion
We are commited to a friendly and inclusive environment for everyone. Regardless of gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion. We do not tolerate any of harassment in our events.
We practice inclusion policies, with the goal of creating a diverse and welcoming environment for everybody. We give priority to people from underrepresented groups for events with a waiting list. We also organize events focused to specific groups.
