Steve Dower suggested that I start this conversation here.
Based on core dev requirements and feedback after September’s sprint, I have been working with two organizations that are interested in hosting the 2019 core dev sprints. Below is a summary of what each org is offering:
Pinterest in San Francisco has offered a venue with catering
Bloomberg in London has offered a venue with catering and PyLondinium has offered to donate their profit to the PSF towards the use of core dev travel and hotel costs. Their profits are estimated to be $20,000 in 2019, which is enough to cover the majority of reimbursements.
Based on what is being offered, I recommend that we take Bloomberg & PyLondinium up on their offers. Additionally, having it in London should make it easier for some core devs to join.
With regards to the date, does the week of September 9, 2019 work?
A side discussion point: we don’t have a formal selection process for the core dev sprint venue and date, but let’s work on something after a new governance model is selected.
