Sea Sprint is an oceanfront invitational sprint taking place September 21-24 on the white sand beaches of Oak Island, North Carolina. The focus of Sea Sprint, inspired by Eric Steele's PSE 2012 talk, is "getting Deco Lite into the Plone 4.x series" (think Tiles and Deco). Sea Sprint has been designated a "strategic" sprint by the Plone Foundation.
Sea Sprint has assembled a rock star team of Plone developers to advance the Deco Lite cause including Plone Conference 2012 host and the original author of Deco, Rob Gietema of Four Digits, prolific Plone contributor Rok Garbas, and Plone release manager Eric Steele. See the full team and list of sponsors at Sea Sprint headquarters.
Sea Sprint is also inspired by the recent Cafecito Sprint in Brazil which contributed heavily to Deco Lite packages. The aim of Sea Sprint is to continue this momentum to push Deco Lite into production releases of Plone sooner rather than later. The results of the Sea Sprint will be reported at Plone Conference 2012 by Andrew Leeb and Ian Anderson of Anderson Leeb, Inc., the primary sponsor of Sea Sprint.
