Sprints at PyCon Australia 2011
Sprints will be held after the conference this year, on the 22nd and 23rd of August.
They will be at the same venue, the Sydney Masonic Center.
Doors are open at 9am and at least some of us will be there until 10pm.
What's a Sprint?
It's a bunch of people getting together to code.
It's your chance to contribute to the Python ecosystem under the guidance of experienced developers. All you need is a laptop and a desire to make some part of Python better.
This introductory video from PyCon US provides a good idea of what you can expect (although on a smaller scale of course) at the PyCon Au sprints:
