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.
Anyone interested in helping make the Sea Sprint happen should donate to the Sea Sprint Chipin fund. Any donations would be greatly appreciated. Donations will be used to help bring developers to the event from around the world.
The team will include:
- Eric Steele (esteele)
- Rok Garbas (garbas)
- Rob Gietema (robgietema)
- David Glick (davisagli)
- Ross Patterson (rpatterson)
- Timo Stollenwerk (tisto)
- Nathan Van Gheem (vangheem)
- Cris Ewing (cewing)
- Calvin Hendryx-Parker (calvinhp)
- Clayton Parker (claytron))
- Andrew Leeb (ableeb)
- Ian Anderson (ianderso)
In addition, Elizabeth Leddy, Steve McMachon, The Cafecito Sprint Team and UCLA OIT will participate remotely.
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.
Take a moment to donate in support of this event. It is a great investment in the future of Plone.
