The growing success of Jupyter and its emerging impact on the areas of science, analytics, and data science are signs that the world is waking up to the critical importance of transparency, accountability, and reproducibility. Of course, all of these require open source software as well as a strong community to support it.

As a founder of Continuum Analytics and one of the creators of Anaconda and the PyData community, Peter Wang has had a front-row seat to the ongoing transformation within the fields of science, education, and business. Peter discusses the coevolution of Jupyter and Anaconda, two major players in the new open data science ecosystem, and shares next steps to a sustainable future.

This keynote is sponsored by Anaconda Powered by Continuum Analytics.
