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.


Many members of the Jupyter community host and attend events to connect others that use Jupyter and other tools in the open data analytics stack, such as JupyterCon, Jupyter Community Workshops, JupyterDays, and other events. See the Project Jupyter Events for more details.

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.
