What is a sprint?

Basically, a Django sprint is an excuse for people to focus their undivided attention, for a set time frame, on improving Django. It's a focused, scheduled effort to test, fix bugs, add new features and improve documentation.

Anybody, anywhere around the world, can participate and contribute. Most contributors will be at their own homes/schools/workplaces, but a number of people will gather together in person for camaraderie, improved communication and the other benefits of face-to-face interaction.

For more information, view Brett Cannon's ​introductory talk ( from PyCon, or read Eric Holscher's ​blog post (

*If you've never contributed to Django before, a sprint is the perfect chance for you to chip in.*
