Project Jupyter is a non-profit, open-source project, born out of the IPython Project in 2014 as it evolved to support interactive data science and scientific computing across all programming languages. Jupyter will always be 100% open-source software, free for all to use and released under the liberal terms of the modified BSD license.
Jupyter is developed in the open on GitHub, through the consensus of the Jupyter community. For more information on our governance approach, please see our Governance Document.
All online and in-person interactions and communications directly related to the project are covered by the Jupyter Code of Conduct. This Code of Conduct sets expectations to enable a diverse community of users and contributors to participate in the project with respect and safety.
Project Jupyter Distinguished Contributors are recognized for their substantial contributions to Jupyter itself in both quality and quantity over at least two years. Contributions may include code, code review, infrastructure work, mailing list and chat participation, community help/building, education and outreach, fundraising, branding, marketing, inclusion and diversity, UX design and research, etc. Up to 10 new Distinguished Contributors are selected each year by the cumulative body of Distinguished Contributors.
