Who has attended a sprint at a conference? 🀚

I would like to introduce to a different type of sprint

So what is a sprint?

Not the sport πŸƒπŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸƒβ€β™‚οΈ

...designed for teams of ten or fewer members,

who break their work into goalsΒ 

that can be completed within time-boxed iterations

I consult the internet...

TL;DR
Β 

Β Sit together,

complete small tasks

But what does it means for sprints at Conferences?

We contribute to open-sources

  • Fix bugs
  • Write tests
  • Closes issues

Β 

Isn't it? πŸ€”

Remember contribution is not just code contribution

But why the sprints?

  • Make friends
  • Learn a new package
  • Get inspired
  • Collaborate

You learn a lot at the sprint

Great ideas also came from sprints

Remember,

it all goes back to the community

Without the community, there's no sprints

Without the sprints, there's less contributions

Without contributions, there's no community

But, there are doubts...

Do we want sprints at PyCon ES next year?
