March 2023 Open Source Working Session: Latin America#

This event is an online hands-on working session to contribute to PyMC, a Python probabilistic programming language. Knowledge of PyMC is not required, and it is beginner-friendly. There is a range of possible contributions, from adding timestamps to videos, to documentation, to running Jupyter notebooks in the latest version of PyMC, to more advanced code contributions.

This event is focused on the LATAM region. However, we welcome folks from all regions. Please indicate on the registration form if you will need a translator.

Volunteers: If you are available on the event day to be a translator for Spanish or Portuguese, please contact us ( To contribute to the website translations, please see Language Translations.
