One little Drupal community secret: the main-event of a DrupalCon might be sprinting...
A code sprint is getting developers for a set amount of time – usually one to two days – and just writing code. That's it. You're not teaching anything. Participants will learn from others as they go, but the focus is not on instruction. The goal is to create working software.
Right now (Saturday 26th Sep) the Drupal community is pushing hard on the first next-gen CMS that will have stable releases early 2016.

Etiquette: Have fun1
Everyone who participates in a Sprint is there because they want to help make Drupal better. It is important to remember to have fun and enjoy the work you are doing. Sprints should be lively and laid back, so that the many different people who participate feel comfortable collaborating with each other.
