Django Sprint in Utrecht, Netherlands

I’m very happy to announce that a two-day Django sprint will take place on February 23-24 in Utrecht, Netherlands. This event is organized by the Dutch Django Association. Sign up!

The venue is the Dutch Game Garden in Utrecht. The sprint will start on Saturday, February 23rd at 10:00 CET and and finish on Sunday, February 24 around 22:00 CET.

If this is your first time contributing to Django itself, you should review the contributing guide and set up your clone of the Django git repository.

Hopefully Django 1.5 will be released by then. Even if it isn't, we'll be able to focus on bugfixes and improvements for Django 1.6, as the 1.5 branch was forked from master in October 2012.

Thanks to the Django Software Foundation and to the Dutch Django Association association, three core developers will participate on site: Jannis Leidel, Florian Apolloner, and myself (Aymeric Augustin).

If you’re unable to come to Utrecht, you're welcome to contribute to the sprint online. Sprinters and core developers will be available in the #django-sprint IRC channel on FreeNode.

We hope you can join us and help make the sprint as successful as possible!
