Django sprint in Amsterdam, The Netherlands

We're very happy to announce that a two-day Django sprint will take place on February 22-23 in Amsterdam, Netherlands. This event is organized by the Dutch Django Association.

The venue is the office of TravelBird in the center of Amsterdam. The sprint will start on Saturday, February 22rd at 10:00 CET and and finish on Sunday, February 23 around 22:00 CET.

With the help of the Django Software Foundation and the Dutch Django Association we will have two core developers on site: Baptiste Mispelon and Daniele Procida. Daniele will also be doing his famed “Don’t be afraid to commit” workshop, which will take people new to contributing to Django through the entire contribution process with real tickets. So please don’t hesitate to join even if you’ve never contributed to Django before.

The first beta for Django 1.7 should come out shortly after the sprint, so we can still contribute bugfixes to it.

If you’re unable to come to Amsterdam, 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!
