Welcome to the OPEN SOURCE HACKATHON 2019

Join us to contribute to and improve the open-source Python data science ecosystem, along with other professionals and enthusiasts, at our London office.

Over 10 hours of intense coding, we will work in teams to fix bugs, write documentation, and implement new features for the open-source packages that we use every day.

The event will not be a competition: the aim is to give back to the community! All participants are welcome: whether you are a GitHub newbie, or a seasoned veteran of the open-source scene, come and join us for a fun day filled with collaboration, coffee, and coding.


Please note that the event is not open to US individuals.

Our Motivation

At Man Group, we rely on the flourishing Python ecosystem, and our Open Source Hackathon is one of the ways we give back to the community.

Over the years, Man Quant Technology developers have contributed to many projects (check out github.com/manahl) and we also sponsor the PyData and Machine Learning meet-ups in London.

Through this event, we hope to further grow the community surrounding these open-source projects.
