Sprints will take place on the 25 August 2013. Interested people are encouraged to contact the sprint organizers.
VisPy is a collaborative project that has the goal to allow more sharing of code between visualization projects based on OpenGL. It does this by providing powerful interfaces to OpenGL, at different levels of abstraction and generality. The sprint session is aimed at gathering people interested in sharing ideas and code around scientific visualization, high performance, publication quality, pure-python, backend independence (including web backends), etc.

Sage: Open Source Mathematics Software
This sprint will show how to take part in the development of Sage:
- find new bugs in Sage
- report them on the trac server http://trac.sagemath.org/sage_trac
- propose patches for new or existing tickets
- review such patches
People who start with Sage are welcome. They will be given a few short exercises to start playing with Sage.

NumPy and SciPy
NumPy and SciPy are open source Python project for mathematics, science, and engineering. They're forming the core of a large eco-system of related packages in this area. NumPy provides multi-dimensional arrays, the fundamental building blocks for scientific computations in Python. Furthermore it provides basic linear algebra, Fourier transforms and random number generators. SciPy is built to work with NumPy arrays, and provides many user-friendly and efficient numerical routines such as routines for optimization, statistics, signal and image processing.
Objectives of the sprint:
- Help people new to contributing to NumPy and SciPy get started.
- Merge as many open PRs as possible.
- Work on critical issues for the 0.13.0 release of SciPy if needed.
- Close tickets and work on new features depending on the interest of the people present.
