All Things Pythonic
Python 3000 Sprint @ Google
by Guido van van Rossum
August 13, 2007
The second annual Python Sprint @ Google is happening: August 22-25 (Wed-Sat), in Mountain View and Chicago.


It's official! The second annual Python Sprint @ Google is happening again: August 22-25 (Wed-Sat). We're sprinting at two locations, this time Google headquarters in Mountain View and the Google office in Chicago (thanks to Brian Fitzpatrick). We'll connect the two sprints with full-screen videoconferencing. The event is free and includes Google's free gourmet food.

Anyone with a reasonable Python experience is invited to attend. The primary goal is to work on Python 3000, to polish off the first alpha release; other ideas are welcome too. Experienced Python core developers will be available for mentoring. (The goal is not to learn Python; it is to learn contributing to Python.)

About the Blogger

Guido van Rossum is the creator of Python, one of the major programming languages on and off the web. The Python community refers to him as the BDFL (Benevolent Dictator For Life), a title straight from a Monty Python skit. He moved from the Netherlands to the USA in 1995, where he met his wife. Until July 2003 they lived in the northern Virginia suburbs of Washington, DC with their son Orlijn, who was born in 2001. They then moved to Silicon Valley where Guido now works for Google (spending 50% of his time on Python!).
