The jupyter community has been invited to give an update about all things Jupyter at SciPy 2021 Plenary, to present a to present a talk about the current state, future plans, and overall landscape of the jupyter ecosystem. As Jupyter is relatively large and has many subprojects, we’ve been allocated 5 minutes a whole 66% more than many other projects which only have 3 minutes.
This thread will be a synchronization point to collect all the information we may present during this update, and find the right format for this presentation.
5 minutes is really short, so we’ll have to made difficult choices, here are a few topics that have been floated around (thanks @Ruv7 for most of the suggestions and doing similar updates at other conferences):
- Community connections points: How to get the latest news throughout the year:
- Follow us on Twitter, Read our blog, check out Discourse - the sorts of things we assume everyone knows but they actually don’t.
- Calls to action:
- are there any parts of the project that could widely benefit from the communities participation? Or something that we need to introduce to facilitate a change coming soon or that has already related to a broadly impactful technical decision?
- Contributor recognition:
- is there anything that we really want to elevate, celebrate, and highlight across the whole community?
- Events update
- Software/Subproject highlights:
- 2-3 max
If you have anything that you would like to add to any of these categories, or other, please add (or edit) a message below this.
We’d also like to find the right presenters this update and the the voice of Jupyter for this update. We have already talked a bit on private channel, and tend to like someone from Jupyter community and had an impactful work, but preferable someone who has not presented Jupyter work too often. We understand that having someone from the steering council can be seen as more impactful, but we don’t believe that members of the steering council should be given more credits, especially since we are in the process of refactoring our governance.
Even of many people have contributed all over the project we’ll only be able to have a single presenter, but can list others on the schedule and slides. We’ve talked about and contacted a few people privately, so don’t take the non-mention of some name as a non-recognition of their tremendous impact. One name seem to come back regularly though, and thus we think that @isabela-pf would be a really good candidate to present, and we thus ask for your feedback and alternative choices.
Again we do not want to give too much work to the presenter – they are already doing a fantastic job with Jupyter.
If you are not sure how to help, you can try to gather statistics on various projects:
- how many releases / download
- list of raising starts,
- highlight new contributors,
I will also try to update this message with updates,
And here are the slides if you want to comment, ask me if you need edit rights for me to invite you.
