Jupyter Sprint | Saturday 13:30-15:30, Beaufort Room

Join us for the “Make your first Jupyter open-source contribution” Sprint in the Beaufort room. This sprint is open to everyone and no separate ticket is required. Just show up ready to learn and make a contribution!In this sprint, we will guide you step-by-step to show you how to make an open-source contribution to JupyterLab and other parts of Project Jupyter. We will start with a short tutorial on how to use Git and GitHub, how to author a change to a project, and how to open a pull request. We will also provide a list of curated issues that are straightforward to resolve to offer a good place to start. Make your first (or nth) Jupyter open-source contribution by opening a pull request today.

Organized by Afshin Darian, a Jupyter Distinguished Contributor, Steering Council member, and maintainer.

Lightning Talks | Saturday, 16:00-17:00 & Sunday, 16:45-17:45

Lightning talks will take place at the end of the day on Saturday and Sunday in the plenary room. They will be 5-minute talks on any topic of interest for the PyData community. Sign-ups will be at the registration table. If we get more sign-ups than allotted spots we will randomly select talks out of a hat. We encourage anyone interested to sign-up for a 5-minute slot.

We invite all PyData chapter organizers and those interested in getting involved to a luncheon social on Sunday. Organizers will meet in the side room in the Gallery Lounge (adjacent to the main hall). Come and meet fellow organizers or learn about what goes into organizing a chapter. This informal gathering will be a great chance to meet new people and learn from one another.

Unconference Track | All-day Sunday, Beaufort Room

Informal sessions led by attendees will be running all day Sunday, 19 June in the Beaufort Room. Unconference sessions are facilitated discussions on topics of interest, impromptu hacking sessions on a specific topic/library, anything that is on topic for the conference but falls outside the formal talks/tutorials tracks — if you’d like to lead a session, propose your idea to the organisers at the registration desk and reserve time on the schedule.
