Looking for a way to contribute to an awesome open source project?

PyHawaii is excited to host a two-day Sprint/Hackathon under a grant from Project Jupyter and Bloomberg and support from Booz Allen Hamilton.

Join us to help fix bugs, add features, and improve the documentation.

The Jupyter ecosystem of tools, including Notebook and Lab have been tremendously impactful to data analysis, data science, teaching and more. Jupyter was awarded the 2017 ACM Software System Award, a significant honor for the project. Project Jupyter joins an illustrious list of projects that contains major highlights of computing history, including Unix, TeX, S (R’s predecessor), the Web, Mosaic, Java, INGRES (modern databases) and more.

You can be a part of the Project Jupyter's future!

New to contributing to open source? Not sure where to start?

Project Jupyter has committed to sending a two core developers: Dr. Brian Granger and Mr. Ian Rose to Hawaii to help during the event. PyHawaii membership will also be present to guide you and help overcome some of the hurdles. You can take PyHawaii’s self-paced tutorial on How to Contribute to Open Source (http://bit.ly/sprint_intro) to help familiarize yourself with some of the tools/techniques you will need.

We welcome newcomers and will do all we can to help you be successful. Project Jupyter incorporates tools written in many different coding languages including Python, Javascript and more!

Interested in learning more about contributing to Jupyter? See their content contributor documents (https://jupyter.readthedocs.io/en/latest/contributor/content-contributor.html).

The ecosystem is broad, so there are many ways for you to help improve Jupyter (whether you are a programmer OR not):

* write new or improved documentation
* provide improvements to the user interface
* develop components to support the multi-user Jupyter Hub
* incorporate your favorite language via language kernels
* add support for new OR improved widgets
* and more...
