A sprint is a focused collaborative work session lasting anywhere from a day to a week, in which contributors pair off and work together to add to or improve some aspect of Plone. Contributors include graphics designers, writers, user interface designers, organizers, process experts, and developers. All are welcome, including newcomers!
Sprints are how we get things done.
When you get a bunch of Plone people in the same room, magical things happen. Pairing expert developers with beginners, sprints are great learning opportunities. Attend the sprint meeting. Get your assignment. Pair up with other developers. At the end of the day, report out your accomplishments. Then, go drink some more beer.
