Anybody know the Etymology of the word 'Sprint' as in coding Sprint?

Discussion in 'Python' started by Laura Creighton, Sep 13, 2003.

  1. I think it comes from Jeff Sutherland's Agile Programming Methodology,
    called Scrum http://jeffsutherland.com/scrum/index.html where work is
    planned into month long interations called Sprints. (Jeff must have
    terrific stamina if he thinks that the thing to call a month-long race
    is a Sprint :) )

    These days we do them shorter -- as in a 4 days Sprint before Pycon.

    Anybody know the etymology for sure?
