"Sprints" are developer meetings to work on specific parts of Debian and having fun doing so.
Volunteers contribute their own free time, enthusiasm, and work; Debian tries hard to support sprints financially, although that is possible only thank to generous donations to Debian from people and other entities who care about Debian.
check the sprint HOWTO for information on how to organize a sprint
frequently used / "Debian-friendly" venues (e.g. venues who have in the past offered for free or discount venues to hold Debian sprints)
For all other information about the sprint program, please get in touch with the debian-sprints mailing list.
you can support Debian sprints with your donations to the Debian project

Thanks to Junta de Extremadura, which first introduced the notion of development sprints in Debian, under the name of Extremadura work sessions
