“Bloomberg believes the more we improve open source tools for scientists, the better off we all are”
Bloomberg has been an active supporter of NumFOCUS for many years, and we are delighted to formalize the relationship by having them join us as a Platinum Corporate Sponsor. Bloomberg welcomed the data science community to their offices, hosting the sold-out PyData London conference three times from 2015-2017; they were also Strategic Sponsors of the first JupyterCon in New York in 2017, which included sponsoring the Poster Session and Sprint Day. Bloomberg also hosted the bi-annual in-person Team Meeting of core Jupyter developers at its Global Headquarters in New York, as well as periodically hosting meetups of the PyData New York chapter. Bloomberg has also provided funding for the NumFOCUS Diversity & Inclusion in Scientific Computing (DISC) program, including support for events in both London and New York City.
