JupyterDay Atlanta 2016

Jupyter is coming to the Southeast: get ready for JupyterDay Atlanta, Saturday, August 13th! We are pleased to announce the fifth JupyterDay which will be hosted at Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) Conference Center. Lead organizers Tony Fast and Nick Bollweg have a great event planned that is committed to education, open source, and community, which is organized by the local business, academic, and open source community. What is a JupyterDay? What exactly will be happening on August 13? Read on. Or go right now and get your tickets!

What is JupyterDay Atlanta?

The Jupyter community and software mostly lives online on Github, on the discussion group, and at national and global conferences like SciPy, PyData and PyCon — JupyterDay Atlanta is a locally-organized event that gives Jupyter users, from beginners to experts, the opportunity to meet in person, talk about their work, and write code without leaving their hometown. You’ll get the chance to meet several of Project Jupyter’s core developers in a casual, vendor free zone and participate in an environment filled with education and collaboration.
