As part of the second call for proposals for Jupyter community workshop events, the University of Edinburgh is offering two brilliant options (yes I am slightly biased).

We are currently looking for expressions of interest from Jupyter community members, especially core contributors to Jupyter. We are looking to host either of these events, if selected, in mid-late May 2019. Give the following brief a once-over, if you would like to add your name to this or be involved then please use the Google Forms at the bottom of each article to express your interest in joining us for an amazing event!

If you can’t make the event but have any insight then please leave a comment on the articles, feel free to shout about this from a soapbox on social media (soapbox not provided).
