I just returned from my first CiviCRM sprint. It was called the DC Sprint, but as Jeremy has already posted, we were actually in Maryland.

As a first time attendee of a CiviCRM conference and sprint, I really did not know what to expect. I was very pleased that both WordPress and Joomla! received some real attention at the sprint and I hope we are heading to a place where CiviCRM can be truly CMS agnostic.

We're approaching the middle of the third day of the 2014 East Coast code sprint, situated in a bucolic farmhouse just outside of Frederick, Maryland. The location has made this sprint a little different, with some people being able to commute back and forth. In total, 14 or so sprinters have been working on webtests, improvements to CiviVolunteer, and improvements to buildkit for all platforms, which some renewed focus on Joomla and Wordpress.

This year's post CiviCon sprint was organized in Tahoe, where CiviCRM enthusiasts from our ever-growing community came forward to tackle the daunting task of fixing issues from 4.5 queue. The goal was to make significant progress towards alpha release. We subdivided the groups each one working with core team members Dave, Kurund, Tim, Coleman, Yashodha and our documentation guru Michael to get 4.5 into a decent shape for an alpha release and document the features as we go along.

For a first timer, it sounds daunting to go the CiviCRM code sprint. While I had worked with CiviCRM for a while and fixed many client issues with AGH Strategies, I was wondering how I would contribute to the CiviCRM community during the sprint. Like many other contributors I brought my own ideas and vision for how this week would go.

Today will be my last day out west before heading back to rainy New York City, a near two week trip in which I've been immersed in CiviCRM. Needless to say, I've learned a lot and am excited for the new features to be had in the upcoming 4.5 release.

We are four days into the sprint now and things are going great! I think everyone was ready to get right to it this morning since the crew got to sneak away yesterday for an afternoon out at Lake Tahoe. The breath taking view from Eagle Rock was a great way to regroup and get ready for the remainder of the week.

As Andrew wrote earlier this week, the post-CiviCon code sprint in Tahoe, CA, has divided up into smaller teams in an effort to bring version 4.5 to feature-freeze. I've been working in Kurund's group, and I've been nominated to report on our progress thus far. As we head into Day 4 of the sprint, we've closed 15 of the 26 issues assigned to our group and tackled a few issues in other groups' queues.

I'm writing from the third day of the post-CiviCon code sprint in Truckee, California.  With 36 participants, we've divided into several groups focused upon making the upcoming CiviCRM 4.5 release as stable and useful as possible.

Led by Dave Greenberg and Yashodha Chaku, our group has tackled several bugs and limitations, yielding a number of improvements in just a couple of days.
