This group is for planning and supporting Drupal code sprints. It'll also be the place to evaluate and make recommendations on (limited!) Drupal Association code sprint funding, see these guidelines.
If you're looking for a hand getting a sprint organized, post here and we'll try to get you what you need.
If you're planning a sprint, please post here to let people know what you're planning.
If you've hit up other sources and still need a bit of funding to make your sprint happen, you can apply here for Drupal Association help. To apply: Create a post here called "Sprint funding request for [description of sprint]" e.g. "Sprint funding request ." Give details about your sprint. See the guidelines for a list of what details will be needed. If you've already posted a sprint announcement, you can link to it and give just the extra details that are needed.
If you're willing and available to be a mentor for code sprint organizers and also review and decide on Drupal Association funding for code sprints, please sign up for this group and then contact the group manager to be added as an admin of this group. Sprint group admins will be responsible for making finding recommendations.
For more information on Drupal sprints, see the handbook section on sprints on drupal.org.
The sprint is scheduled for Saturday, June 15th, 2013 at the Urban Center in Bologna (Italy). We will discuss and contribute to the Drupal 8 release.
The event is organized by the Drupal Italia Association (http://www.drupalitalia.org/) and promoted by Incredibol (http://www.incredibol.net/), a project promoted by the Municipality of Bologna whose purpose is to promote innovation and growth of the creative sector in Bologna and Emilia-Romagna.Read more
That's wonderful that you'll be having another sprint :)
We've been working off our TODO list for sprints lately:
This just links to various searches of the core queue on d.o, but it's
much easier to manage than tags for each sprint.
Will this work for you?

In September 2012, after hearing the Community Cultivation Grants form the DA announce several times on the Drupal Easy podcast, I applied for one and got it.
The grant was for $240 towards starting an all-ages friendly local contribution focused meet-up in Oak Park Illinois USA (which is a suburb just outside of Chicago). We meet at the Oak Park Public Library.
The grant covered $72 for 6 months of meetup.com
Reservations for space to meet at the local library was $20/month. We met there 5 times.
Join us on making Drupal 8 rock!
We'll take part in the global sprint weeking and sprint at drunomics office.
Prerequisites: Due to the low number of participants/mentors you should be able to create a Drupal 8 patch using Git already, as documented here.
Location: drunomics office
Topic: Drupal 8 (Entity NG conversion, Entity validation API, Restful web services)
Drupal 8 is nu in feature freeze en daarom vinden over de hele wereld sprints plaats tijdens het weekend van 9 en 10 maart (http://groups.drupal.org/node/277768).
Op zaterdag 9 maart organiseren Bart Feenstra (Xano) en Erik Stielstra (Sutharsan) een sprint in Enschede. We zullen enkele ontwikkelingen van Drupal 8 bespreken en onze kennis in de praktijk toepassen door te helpen aan Drupal core. Er zijn diverse taken waar we mee bezig zullen gaan:
- patches schrijven
- change records/documentatie schrijven en verbeteren
- de interface testen
Droplabs is happy to host Drupal Sprint Weekend: Los Angeles on Saturday and Sunday, March 9 & 10, 2013. On Saturday, coffee and pastries are being sponsored by Exaltation of Larks and lunch will be provided by Princess Cruises.
This event is taking place simultaneously across the globe. See http://groups.drupal.org/node/277768 for a list of other Drupal Sprint Weekend themes and locations around the world.
Those interested in attending this meetup remotely are welcome to join us via a Google+ Hangout.
What's a "code sprint"?
Code sprints are organized events where attendees meet online or in person (and sometimes both) and work toward a shared goal.
Local area organizers have produced several code sprints in recent history, including sprints focused on building the SCALE conference website, resolving issues in the Drupal 7 issue queue and updating the Conference Organizing Distribution (COD) project to Drupal 7.
See https://drupal.org/node/247982 for more information.
What's this code sprint about?
Good question! There will be 4 separate themes at this event:
- The Droplabs Operations Management Group (OMG) is hosting a code sprint for advancing Otto, a Drupal-based coworking space management system, towards its first public release;
- Jen Lampton, who ran the Twig code sprint at Drupal Design Camp LA (the last code sprint before Twig was committed to Drupal core!), has asked Droplabs to be a remote location for Twig Sprint. Droplabs is providing a venue and resources for anyone who's interested in participating;
- Members of the Greater Los Angeles Area Drupal Camp (GLADCamp) organizing team will be working on the GLADCamp website and adding content about the conference, including sponsorship levels, hotel information, and local attractions;
- Droplabs will also provide a FREE mentored Drupal training using Build a Module videos. Just bring your laptop and a pair of headphones. A Droplabs staff member will set up you with a day pass.
We're following up on Sunday with a virtual sprint. Below is the IRC channel and Google+ Hangout information:

While we are hopeful that there will be many people around the globe taking advantage of the Drupal Sprint Weekend to sprint on tasks on the Drupal 8 Multilingual Initiative, there is a sprint specifically organized for this initiative in Budapest on March 9th from 9am local time (expected to last until 5pm or so).
Join in on IRC at #drupal-i18n if you want to be involved or need help working on D8MI at other sprints around the globe.

Sprints do not show up very far in the future on lists that use the g.d.o event listings for sprints. Here is an issue to hopefully list more sprints. http://drupal.org/node/1888892
Views in Core Sprint happening in the Le Marais district of Paris from 26th-28th August. So far we think there are nine people attending, including most (if not all) of the key Views developers and some interested others. If you want to join in, contact us. There is a limit to how many people we can organise, but this sprint is happening and we'd like to make the most of it, so if you can help and want to step forward then do let us know.
Thanks to the leadership of Allie Micka and R.J. Steinert, the Snowball initiative to provide tools for coordinating and funding Drupal initiatives is coming to the Boston area this long weekend for its first code sprint.
We will focus on building a working alpha so we have something real to share for feedback, to refine, and to build process, message, and governance around.
We'll be working on Friday November 11th, Saturday the 12th, and Sunday the 13th starting at 10am on Friday and no later than that on the weekend days in Somerville, Massachusetts.Read more

There will be two skype kick-off calls of about 30 min each on Friday, April 8. One at 8 am EDT and one at
3 pm 4 pm EDT (hopefully that will span enough timezones). Join IRC before hand and share your skype name there to be called in.
At the outset, some possible high-level goals are:
We are planning a virtual sprint focused on implementing new feature for the 7.x version, as well as stabilizing it and moving towards an RC release.
Additional work may begin on a 6.x-3.x branch.

Saturday the 22nd of May we organize a Drupal 7 translate sprint for the Dutch speaking community.
We start at 9.00 as if it is a working day @ the office of SowMedia in Rotterdam NL.
Never did a translation for Drupal? No Problem!
We have Erik Stielstra, 'master of Dutch Drupal Translations'. He can help you out and give you a jump start!
To prepare yourself you can start with reading (and understanding) this:
The address is:

The Media Sprint in late October was amazing! Jody and Maarten hunkered in one corner and bashed out the UI, while Peter and Darrel worked out some of the FileField integration. Meanwhile Arthur whipped out a File Metadata implementation, and I began teasing the existing work out of Drupal 6 and into Drupal 7.
Also in the fray were Jonathan, Forest, Rob, Oleg, and Jen, who participated in varying degrees. Jen also took the opportunity to begin a cool new core theme for Drupal 7, and with Darrel's help took some time to give us a pre-fab image field with core articles! W00T!
The sprint was an amazing success. The module actually works now, as evidenced by Arthur's demonstration screencast. After installing Media, you can actually browse your file system in the administrative screen, with lovely thumbnails representing the file objects. The same action is also available when uploading a new file.
In the past couple of weeks, we've also made strides towards implementing remote streams, with the Media: YouTube module almost ready for unveiling.Read more
We're looking for a Drupal and PHP Developer to work on a project for us (http://www.dubitlimited.com) and a top US media company. The job will last for 2-3 months or longer.
If you're interested, qualified and within commuting distance of Leeds (we may me amenable to you working partly offsite, but we will need you at the office at certain points of the project) then please get in touch.
my email - firstname.lastname@example.org
As a supplement to the Media group, I launched Drupal Media today to help with the ongoing Media sprint efforts. On its front page, you'll see a map to the next sprint (which is at Mansueto - 7 World Trade Ctr, New York, NY this Friday-Saturday, October 23-24, from 9-5). Tabs are also available for discussions (add your own), videos, and a feed to the Media module issue queue. Please give me any feedback or desired functionality that would be useful for the site. (Including long-term plans for the useful domain, contributed by the good folks at Development Seed.)
Don't forget that you have to pre-register if you plan to come to the sprint, with your full name. Hope to see you there, or at #drupal-media in IRC!Read more
Join this "event" if you're up for both serving as a mentor to Drupal code sprint organizers and helping decide on funding applications for Drupal Association sprint support.
The first meeting, on Oct. 7 2009 at 18:00 UTC, on freenode IRC in #drupal-sprints, will be to review the Request for Funding for the Media Sprint in NYC, Oct 23-24.
