[coding sprint] wednesday.

Apologies to those for whom this is a duplicate, I sent it to one of
our two mailing lists.  We should likely standardize, but I don't see
how to do that without making someone's life harder.

Hey all,

I'm organizing a small coding sprint at my place on Wednesday, and am
looking for 1-3 more participants so I thought I'd open it up to
everyone. ?This first one is kind of an experiment to see how to make
these things work - I'd like to do something at a larger scale
sometime soon.

Here are the basics.

TIME: ~6:30-10:30 on Wednesday, April 29th
LOCATION: My place, East 70s (a 10m walk from the 77th street subway)

There will be 6-8 of us working on one project (voting will happen
tomorrow on what project). ?The person whose project we work on will
take on the role of "customer" and be the final decider on issues of
what functionality is important, etc, etc.

We'll then divide up into pairs for pair programming and take tasks
that should last about 45 minutes. ?After about 45m-an hour, we'll
reconvene and give a status update on the progress made on our work.
Then we'll assess what needs to be done next, and take more pieces.

Although eventually I think this system will work well for those with
little python experience, I'm looking for those who feel comfortable
with python for this first sprint. ?You should also be comfortable
with version control.

Write me privately with "[coding sprint]" in the subject if you're
interested. ?Preference will be given to people that I've met (it is
my apartment after all) but there will likely be more of these so just
write me anyway if you'd like to go to a future one!
