I love to see peoples' open-source projects and would love some opinions/contributions to a thing or two I'm working on. I think a fun sprint-like meetup format would be:

Introduction of project
* What problem does it solve?
* Demo?

Q/A
* Answer questions about features/design
* Take suggestions for additional features
* Get a feeling for how many people would be interested in using/contributing to it

Code Walkthrough
* Familiarize everyone with how it works
* Take suggestions for how to improve code style/readability and point out known issues

Group Coding
* People comfortable with contributing pull out laptops and declare what they're working on
* People not comfortable pick someone else to watch
* Presenter floats around answering questions, reviewing work or also works on a new feature

I'm not sure how well this would work in practice and how many projects we could pull together that would be broadly interesting and an appropriate size/complexity/maturity. If others are interested in sprints, let me know and I'd be happy to present.

Ok - just to go off on the deep end a bit since today is a long day ... ;-) 

One interesting topic is (IMHO) there are two major divisions of users of python (actually more than two but for purposes of discussion lets keep it simple). The first is using python for scripts and data analysis. The second is for core framework/engine development. I've been wondering lately about the differences in the tools, libraries and techniques that differ between the two and how they intersect. For example in the script/data analysis IPython Notebook is becoming a dominant force. In the case of frameworks I find raw editors, eclipse, aptana, pycharm (thanks to Ryan!) and other tools seem to be better suited. When developing between these two divisions there are different tradeoffs in libraries, development tools, deployments, etc that apply as well as how mixed language tools (javascript in particular) come into play in the solutions.

BTW - abusing this thread a bit: Any walk on water python/javascript (angularJS) people out there looking into some project work shoot me an email, gearing up another phase on two projects and might have some interesting opportunities.

Thanks,
Brandon
