I don't think there is an introduction page. From what happened at the
previous sprints, you usually have brainstorming, coding, reviewing of
patches, demos, discussions about tools, community updates, but also
drinks and socializing.

Everyone is definitely welcome and it's a good opportunity to be
introduced to the codebase (and meet other contributors and users).
