What is a “Sprint” ?

Most Open Source software is created by multiple persons remotely. At Sprints the developers meet in person to work on OSS together. Other communities call a Sprint "Hackathon".

As conference we are happy to provide a platform where maintainers and developers of Open Source in Python / PyData can meet.

We will have a "Sprint Orientation" session on Friday afternoon at Kosmos. In this session the organisers of a sprint present what they plan to sprint on. If you want to join a sprint team, please attend this session.

Sprints Venue

Sprints will be hosted at Diconium, the venue is located at Mollstraße 1, 10178, close to Alexanderplatz. You can easily get their using the U-Bahn (Alexanderplatz is the closest station).


The sprints will take place on Saturday, Oct 12 and Sunday Oct 13 and will start at 9 am and will run until 6 pm.

Our host will offer food, coffee and drinks throughout the day.
