For the first time in its history, PyData Amsterdam will host Open Source Contribution Sprints. These will take place on Saturday, June 20th. We will bring together eager developers and maintainers of some of the libraries we all use and love to learn and do our share in contributing to open source development.
Our sprints are a day of intensive development on an open source project of your choice. It’s a time to come together, to share what you’ve learned during the conference with the people you met, and apply it to an open source project.
Who can participate?
You! All experience levels are welcome; sprints are an excellent opportunity to get connected with and start contributing to your favorite Python project. Participation in the sprints is free! We do ask you to sign up so we can make sure we have enough facilities in place to host everyone. You can express interest in the sprints when purchasing tickets.
How can I Prepare?
There will be several sessions in the “lunch chats” slot of the conference that can help you get up to speed with the tools and processes needed to start contributing. Keep an eye out on the schedule to find out when these events are happening.
