The Dutch Django Association ( is organising another Django Sprint! Everyone can join to make the Django framework even better! During the 2 sprint days, we will contribute to Django together. Triage or solve tickets, easy or hard ones, improve existing patches, make the documentation better, take your pick!

Most of all, you! You don't need to be a member of the Dutch Django Association (, everyone is welcome! To make sure everyone feels welcome and comfortable at our sprint, all attendees must abide by the Django Code of Conduct (

You will probably need some experience with Django and knowledge of Python, but the bar is not high. We'll have four core developers on site: Baptiste Mispelon, Markus Holtermann, Daniele Procida and Erik Romijn. The core developer's attendance is funded by the Dutch Django Association and Divio.

Daniele will also be doing his famed “Don’t be afraid to commit” workshop, which will take people new to contributing to Django through the entire contribution process with real tickets. So please don’t hesitate to join even if you do have some experience with Django, but you’ve never contributed to Django before.

The doors will open on Saturday, March 7 from 9:30. There will be a kickoff at 10:00. The "Don't be afraid to commit" workshop will start around 10:15, which is specifically recommended for new contributors. We'll stop Sunday, March 8 around 22.00. You can come for any partial period you like, though we do recommend that you join us for the kickoff, especially if this is your first sprint. Staff will be there during the whole two days.
