PyConf Hyderabad 2019 Devsprint

PyConf Hyderabad is the biggest gathering of Pythonistas and Open Source developers in Hyderabad. But whats a Tech Conference without getting your hands dirty writing some Code. So for all the developers and open source enthusisats we are pleased to announce DevSprints at PyConf Hyderabad for the very first time.

What is a Devsprint ?

During Devsprints, mentors/contributors of OSS projects guide participants through the end-to-end process of OSS contribution, right from setting up build environments, to developing and testing code, to submitting patches for bugs. If you are stuck, mentors are all available to help you figure out issues and get you back up and running! From past experiences, we’ve seen a lot of people start off contributing to OSS through Devsprints and later go on to become regular contributors to various projects across the web.

When and Where ?

Devsprints will be running parallel to workshops in the Devsprint rooms on 7th Dec, 2019 at T-Hub, IIIT Hyderabad.


If you want to attend a Devsprint please purchase a Workshop and Devsprint ticket at this link. It will give you full day access to any Workshop/Devsprint of your choice. Lunch and Tea is included in this ticket.
