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:

This Saturday, October 6, 2012 at 1pm, we're having a Barnraising for the launch of the new version of the Droplabs website, followed by festivities around the firepit celebrating the launch!
Steve and Cory have done a fantastic job on the website and it not only has some great new features, it looks great!
In the spirit of Droplabs, this is a potluck event, so please feel free to bring a liquid contribution to the afterparty, or snacks to help keep the developers' blood sugar level and their heads in the game. (This isn't necessary to attend, as your sparkling personality would certainly be motivation enough.)

Barn Raising and Code Sprint for the Echo Park and Arroyo S.E.C.O. Time Banks at Droplabs on August 17 & 18, 2012
Join us at Droplabs on Saturday, August 18, 2012, for a Barn Raising and Code Sprint to benefit the Arroyo SECO Network of Time Banks! We are also having an open meeting of the Time Bank Tech Team the evening before on Friday, August 17, 2012 that you are welcome to attend.
There's something for everyone at this event. If you're interested in learning more about Drupal and getting some practical hands-on experience, or if you're a Drupal power user and would like to help mentor others into using Drupal's best practices for site development, this is an excellent opportunity.
The Arroyo SECO Network of Time Banks is a non-profit community collective with a mission to facilitate the cooperative exchange of goods and services among its members. Since September 2011, the Arroyo SECO Network of Time Banks has been using Drupal to manage their community website at http://arroyoseco.timebanks.org and its currency system.
At this barn raising, we'll be improving Community Weaver and creating features. The work we do will be shared with TimeBanks USA, which will directly benefit the 400+ time banks that have their own sites that use the same Drupal distribution.
This is our third barn raising for the time bank. See http://ex.tl/ZTT for more information about our previous barn raising and code sprint.Read more
