Business Summit discussion group

JupyterCon Business Summit
Location: Concourse A: Business Summit

The Business Summit concludes with breakout sessions that allow enterprise stakeholders to give input to Project Jupyter directly about features needed, roadmap priorities, and who will partner on specific projects. Leveraging an “unconference” format popularized by the O’Reilly Foo Camp events, participants will propose discussion topics; then everyone chooses which discussions they want to attend. (Feel free to move among multiple discussions if you wish.) Each discussion group should assign someone to take notes. Expected outcomes should focus on input for Project Jupyter planning.
