PyCon sprints, day 1
It's been a long day so far. I woke up at 7AM and wandered over the the Cavritz center where the sprints are being held. I was the second person to show up, so I helped wire up the two rooms for the sprints. People started drifting in a bit after that, and in no time at all we were up and running.

The Chandler sprint is going fairly well. In addition to the folks who signed up, Brian Dorsey, who I met at the Seattle Python User's Group, has joined the sprint, and is asking all kinds of interesting questions, and is giving some good feedback on documentation and API designs. Bear from #chandler is here and it's good to finally have a face, voice, and facial expressions to put to the name. He also came "loaded for bear" -- he brought enough backup equipment to run another sprint all by himself. Roger Eaton is here climbing the Python and Chandler learning cures, and Michael Bernstein also joined us for the day. We had some glitches getting started -- mostly because it's been a little while since I've really used a Windows build, and partially because I was barely awake. But we've got things straightened out now, and we'll be ready to start on the actual sprint work in the morning. The most commonly asked question is "Why aren't you using ZODB?". There is a page on the Chandler wiki that contains the answer. Jeremy Hylton did stop by and give us (mostly me) a mini tutorial on ZODB so I could understand how it compares.

It's been good to start connecting names and faces. Itamar Shtull-Trauring stopped by to in-person introduce himself, and I know that there are a few other folks floating around who I haven' t met in person yet. Please stop by the table -- don't be shy.
