Reception & Sprints

PyOhio attendees are invited to informal reception and sprint sessions. These events are meant for anyone who would like to meet up with other attendees for informal discussion and/or coding.


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.

Leading a sprint

We need people to lead sprints! To lead, just announce what you'd like to sprint on (edit the page or write, be at the sprint venue for as much time as you can spare, and be prepared to instruct your sprinters on what work needs to be done and how to do it. If you'd like to, give a Saturday night Lightning Talk introducing your project to pique the community's interest and recruit sprinters.

You don't need to be there every night to lead a sprint - just indicate your rough expected schedule, so your sprinters don't miss you.
