Ireland PyPy sprint 21th-27th August 2006

The next PyPy sprint will happen in the nice city of
Limerick in Ireland from 21st till 27th August.
(Most people intend to arrive 20th August).

The main focus of the sprint will be on JIT compiler works,
various optimization works, porting extension modules,
infrastructure works like a build tool for PyPy, or
extended (distributed) testing.

It's also open to new topics. If you are a student
consider to participate in `Summer of PyPy`_ in order
get funding for your travels and accomodation.

The sprint is being hosted by University of Limerick
(http://www.ul.ie/) - and is arranged in co-operation
with people from our sister project Calibre (www.calibre.ie).
Our contact at the University is Pär Ågerfalk and Eoin

First day: introduction and workshop (possible to attend only this day)

During the first day (21st of August) there will be talks on various subjects
related to PyPy:

* A tutorial and technical introduction to the PyPy codebase
(suited for people interested in getting an overview of PyPy´s architecture
and/or contributing to PyPy)

* a workshop covering more in-depth technical aspects of PyPy and what PyPy
can do for you. The workshop will also cover methodology, aiming at explaining
the pros and cons of sprint-driven development.
(suited for sprint attendants, students, staff and other
interested parties from/around the University and the local area)

The tutorial will be part of the sprint introduction - the workshop will take place if
there is enough interest raised before the 21st of August from people planning to
attend. You are of course welcome to attend just for this first day of the sprint.
If you want to come ...

If you'd like to come, please subscribe to the `pypy-sprint mailing list`_
and drop a note about your interests and post any questions. More
organisational information will be send to that list. We'll keep
a list of `people`_ which we'll update (which you can do so yourself
if you have codespeak commit rights).

A small disclaimer:
There might be people visiting the sprint in order to do research on
how open source communities work, organize and communicate. This
research might be done via filming, observing or interviewing.
But of course you will be able to opt-out of being filmed at the sprint.
