Welcome to Discourse

(system) #1

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.
The first paragraph of this pinned topic will be visible as a welcome message to all new visitors on your homepage. It’s important!

Edit this into a brief description of your community:

  • Who is it for?
  • What can they find here?
  • Why should they come here?
  • Where can they read more (links, resources, etc)?

You may want to close this topic via the admin :wrench: (at the upper right and bottom), so that replies don’t pile up on an announcement.

Was this Discourse launch part of a conversation I missed? Would love some background on the intended function. I know we discussed creating a “forum” as a fallback for closing down Youtube comments. Is that what this is intended to be? If so, do we plan to recruit community managers to moderate? Thanks for providing context for me.
