Along with several collaborators, we have created an organization called QuantEcon to coordinate developement and documentation of open source software for economists. This lecture site now falls under the QuantEcon umbrella, as a QuantEcon sponsored project. QuantEcon has been accepted as a member of NumFOCUS, a nonprofit that supports open source scientific software development. Other members of NumFOCUS include IPython, Julia, Matplotlib, NumPy, pandas and Jupyter. QuantEcon is run for the benefit of the economics community, and contributions of code, documentation, ideas or developer time are most welcome. The QuantEcon website provides information for anyone who would like to get involved.
