Jupyter is a community of data enthusiasts who believe in the power of open tools and standards for education, research, and data analytics. We welcome contributions and contributors of all kinds - whether they come as contributions to code, participation in the community, opening issues and pointing out bugs, or simply sharing your work with your colleagues and friends.

Join the Jupyter community

If you’re interested in joining the Jupyter community (yay!) we recommend checking out the Jupyter Contributing guide. This contains information about the different projects in the Jupyter ecosystem, the tools and skills that are useful for each project, and other ways that you can become a part of the Jupyter community.

Explore our projects

Jupyter has seen wonderful growth over the past decade. As we have grown, the projects now span multiple GitHub organizations. Jupyter projects may be found in these organizations:

Many organizations have a team-compass repo to provide detailed information about the sub-community, its meetings, and contribution tips.

Participate online

Jupyter also has a number of online communication channels to help keep in touch.

As you interact with others in the Jupyter ecosystem, remember that we have a strong commitment to being an open, inclusive, and positive community. Please read the Jupyter Code of Conduct for guidance on how to interact with others in a way that makes the community thrive.

Below is a short list of Gitter channels, mailing lists, and GitHub repositories where you can get involved. We always welcome participation in the Jupyter community.

Jupyter GitHub

A place where the community collaborates on the development of Jupyter software.

Jupyter Discourse

A Discourse Forum for a multitude of Jupyter topics.

Jupyter General Mailing List

A Google Group for general discussions of Jupyter's use.

Jupyter in Education Mailing List

A Google Group for general discussions of Jupyter's use in education.

Jupyter for Research Facilities

A Google Group for discussions of Jupyter's use at scientific research facilities (such as X-ray light sources, observatories, supercomputers, etc.).

Jupyter Gitter Chatroom

A real-time chatroom, for general development related discussions.

Jupyter on Stack Overflow

Live events

Project Jupyter events provide a forum for community members to come together in person or virtually to share and learn from each other.

This page is for in-person, one-of-a-kind events; for community engagement, see the community page.


This is a calendar of regular online events. It might not be exhaustive.

See this page for more information.


Global JupyterCon conferences provide opportunities for the Jupyter community to come together to learn and share.

Jupyter Community Workshops

Jupyter Community Workshops bring together small groups (approximately 12 to 24 people) of Jupyter community members and core contributors for high-impact strategic work and community engagement on focused topics.

Much of Jupyter’s work is accomplished through remote, online collaboration; yet, over the years, we have found deep value in focused in-person work over a few days. These in-person events are particularly useful for tackling challenging development and design projects, growing the community of contributors, and strengthening collaborations.
