A second CZI grant for NumPy and OpenBLAS

Melissa Mendonça
Hi all,

I'm happy to announce that NumPy and OpenBLAS have (again) received a joint grant from the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative.

Here is the official press release [1], medium article [2], and the full list of grantees [3]. I also wrote a blog post about it to explain a bit more about the details of the proposal [4].

For NumPy, this funding is meant to support activities related to the Documentation Team (maintenance, onboarding of new team members), but also maintenance and development work for f2py. For this, we are glad to be able to support Pearu Peterson and hope we can improve the state of Fortran integration [5] in Python.

The grant is for a year of work, starting on January 1st, 2021. I hope this can have a positive impact on the community and I am grateful to be able to be a part of it.

All comments, questions and considerations are welcome!

Cheers,

Melissa
