SGB Updates - January

This month we finalized the transition to the new SGB board and have made progress on several fronts, including:

  • Code of Conduct: revisions/edits are being made with really amazing work by @stevebronder and @lauren.
  • Google Summer of Code 2021: we are working with NumFOCUS and developers to submit some project proposals and hopefully participate in this year’s google summer of code. See here for info/updates as we make progress.
  • Budgeting: we have started looking at different ways of potentially lowering operating costs.
  • StanCon 2021: Still much to do here, but we took some early steps in thinking about planning, timeline, etc.
