Hey Steven,

this has been discussed in the past, where I was in favour of a sprint before the conference, but I think I was one of the few (if not the only one), since most people have talks and workshops to prepare.

I was a bit surprised though to see the conference move into the weekend, what is the thought behind that? I can hardly imagine doing a code sprint after a six day work week.

Best regards,

Bart van den Eijnden
