There has been enquiries about the PyCon Ireland sprints. Just to let you know that these are the sprints we will be running (there might be another one, we will announce it if confirmed):-
We'll just re-gurgitate what PyCon US wrote about it.
"[...]a chance for the contributors to open-source projects to get together face-to-face for up to four days of intensive learning, development and camaraderie. Newbies sit with gurus, go out for lunch and dinner together, and have a great time while advancing their project."
And a video is worth a thousand million words. ;-)
