We had over twenty attendants with more than half never having contributed to open-source!


Sprint Repo:

The first ever DISC Sprint was held on Friday, October 26th at Two Sigma in New York City. This is our repository for all items related to the 2018 DISC Sprint.


Advertising the Sprint:

DISC Committee members went all out to spread the word for this Sprint and the effort really paid off!

We reached out to folks across a number of different channels including dev/colorTechqueriaTaiwanese Data Professionals, and PyLadies. Even managed to include a blurb at PyData NYC during the Panel Discussion: My First Open Source Contribution.
