For those unfamiliar with the term: sprints are cooperative coding sessions where you work side-by-side with other PyOhio participants to improve an open-source project.

You can:

  • Write something new
  • Extend an existing package (yours, or someone else's)
  • Fix bugs
  • Write tests
  • Improve documentation

It's a great way to contribute to the community, learn about coding and open-source contribution, and have fun with new and old PyOhio friends.

What you need

Experience not needed - sprinting is actually a great way to gain experience. Just bring a laptop!
