About JupyterCon

Experience JupyterCon | Who Should Attend | Why Attend | Program Chairs & Program Committee

JupyterCon will bring together data scientists, researchers, educators, developers, scientists, and core Project contributors and tool creators in NYC for four exciting days of in-depth training, insightful keynotes, fun networking events, and practical talks exploring the Project Jupyter's platform. JupyterCon focuses on real-world practices and how to successfully implement interactive computation in your workflow and projects. In just four days you’ll discover the best practices for modern, collaborative, reproducible data science; intriguing new use cases, and the expertise you need to use Jupyter Notebooks to transform your workflow.

Experience JupyterCon

JupyterCon will educate and motivate by offering:

  • Sessions that apply to the full range of Jupyter's languages and platforms
  • Practical tutorials that go deep into technical skills, new features and applications, and best practices
  • Thought-provoking and relevant keynote presentations
  • Intimate, expert-led two-day hands-on training courses
  • Unparalleled access to core Project contributors and tool creators
  • A Sponsor Pavilion packed with an array of related projects and products
  • A vibrant "hallway track" where hundreds of programmers, data scientists, experts, researchers, vendors, and users of all levels debate and discuss important issues
  • Fun evening events and plenty of informal networking opportunities

Who Should Attend

JupyterCon is for anyone who wants to better use Jupyter's tools, including:

  • Developers and programmers
  • Data scientists
  • Researchers
  • Educators
  • Users across all disciplines: Science, Engineering, the Arts, Digital Humanities, Digital Studies, Journalism, Library Science, and more
  • System admins
  • Hackers and geeks
  • Enterprise developers and managers
  • Community leaders and managers
  • Representatives from companies building products and services for the open source ecosystem

Project Jupyter and O'Reilly Media are committed to promoting diversity and to creating a safe and productive environment for everyone at JupyterCon, and at all of our events. Read the JupyterCon code of conduct.

Why Attend?

In four information-packed days (and nights) JupyterCon gives you the tools you need to make more effective use of the rich Jupyter ecosystem:

  • Discover the advantages of using powerful, interactive tools and systems in all your projects that involve computation and data
  • Learn how to develop custom tools that extend the Jupyter platform with new functionality that fits your specific needs (and discover great extensions created by others)
  • See how others make their computational work more robust and reproducible
  • Survey the landscape of educational materials available using Jupyter
  • Learn about how to best deploy the Jupyter platform across your organization in an optimal way, from a small research or educational group to a large environment with customized authentication, cloud resources, and more
  • Find out how to migrate from expensive commercial installations to a more efficient, cost-effective, open source solution
  • Hear about the new directions of the Project and help shape its evolution with your own insights, use cases, and ideas.
  • Receive hype-free guidance to help identify when Jupyter can be a good fit (or not!) for your organization and needs

Program Chairs

Fernando Perez
is a staff scientist at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and a founding investigator of the Berkeley Institute for Data Science at UC Berkeley, created in 2013. He received a PhD in particle physics from the University of Colorado at Boulder, followed by postdoctoral research in applied mathematics, developing numerical algorithms. Today, his research focuses on creating tools for modern computational research and data science across domain disciplines, with an emphasis on high-level languages, interactive and literate computing, and reproducible research. He created IPython while a graduate student in 2001 and continues to lead its evolution into Project Jupyter, now as a collaborative effort with a talented team that does all the hard work. He regularly lectures about scientific computing and data science, and is a member of the Python Software Foundation, a founding member of the NumFOCUS Foundation, and a National Academy of Science Kavli Frontiers of Science Fellow. He is the recipient of the 2012 Award for the Advancement of Free Software from the Free Software Foundation.

Andrew Odewahn
is the CTO of O'Reilly Media, where he helps define and create the new products, services, and business models that will help O'Reilly continue to make the transition to an increasingly digital future. The author of two books on database development, he has experience as a software developer and consultant in a number of industries, including manufacturing, pharmaceuticals, and publishing. Andrew has an MBA from New York University and a degree in computer science from the University of Alabama. He's also thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail from Georgia to Maine.
