Sprinting to the finish

Django 1.0 is about two months away — time to get cracking!

Update July 15: added details about the August 1st sprint, which will be in Washington, DC.

To help get everything done by the deadline, we'll be holding a series of sprints. Over the next six weeks we'll hold sprints in Sausalito, Lawrence, Austin, Washington, DC, and Portland, and virtually all over the world.

Each sprint day we'll devote at least 24 hours of focused work. Each sprint will be on a Friday, though work will likely continue at a fair clip into the weekend.

Anybody is invited to participate and contribute. If you've never contributed to Django before, this is a perfect way to start.

If you're interested, check out our page all about Django development sprints, and check out the details of each particular sprint:

We hope you'll join us — in person, or virtually!
