For the first time ever we're running two days of development sprints after the main conference finishes. The purpose of these sprints is to help people get their first patch submitted to the Python language itself. There will be Python core developers on hand to help you get your patch written, reviewed, and landed. This is an exciting opportunity to learn how to contribute to core python, and give something back to the language we all love using.
See below for some common questions (and answers):
Who should attend?
Anyone who has an interest in contributing to the core Python language itself. You should have a familiarity with the Python language, as these sprints are not about learning python, but rather learning to contribute to Python.
When are they being run?
The sprints will take place on Monday the 12th and Tuesday the 13th of September 2016.
Where are they being run?
The sprints will be run in the Otago Polytechnic Forth street campus. Ticket holders will be given directions to the venue closer to the time. If you are booking a hotel in Dunedin to attend both the conference and the sprints, it's worth booking one between the two venues.
What do I need to bring?
You will need to bring a laptop. You will also need to provide your own lunch, as the sprints are uncatered, unlike the main conference. There are several places to purchase food within a 5 minute walk of the sprint venue.
How much does it cost?
Sprint tickets cost $10 NZD each. There are only 20 tickets available. Once they're sold, no more will be released.
