NumFOCUS/PyData

NumFOCUS is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that supports and promotes world-class, innovative, open source scientific software.

 

The mission of NumFOCUS is to promote sustainable high-level programming languages, open code development, and reproducible scientific research. We accomplish this mission through our educational programs and events as well as through fiscal sponsorship of open source data science projects. We aim to increase collaboration and communication within the scientific computing community.


PyData, our signature conference, brings together both users and developers of data analysis tools to share ideas and learn from each other. The PyData community gathers to discuss how best to apply Python tools, as well as tools using R and Julia, to meet evolving challenges in data management, processing, analytics, and visualization.

PyData is organized by, and all proceeds benefit, NumFOCUS, a 501(c)(3) public charity. Proceeds are used for the continued development of open-source tools used by data scientists and the advancement of the NumFOCUS mission.
