Scipy is one of the core libraries in the scientific Python eco-system. It's 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:

- Top priority: help people new to contributing to Scipy get started.
- Work on critical issues for the 0.15.0 release of SciPy if needed.
- Merge as many open PRs as possible.
- Close issues and work on new features depending on the interest of the people present.

This sprint is open to everyone. Being familiar with Numpy and Scipy as a user would be very helpful, and knowing the basic of Git usage as well. Here is a description of what contributing to Scipy entails:

Depending on the number and experience of people attending, a short tutorial on setting up a development environment and making a pull request may be organized in the morning.
