Join the Discourse forum

You can reach out to the QuantEcon team via the Discourse forum. The forum is a good place to ask questions, get guidance on contributing to the project, or request new lectures or library features.

Develop and contribute code

We welcome submission of algorithms and high quality code to the QuantEcon library on all topics in quantitative economics. Find out how to contribute to or QuantEcon.jl on our website.

Less experienced developers who wish to get involved can help improve documentation, work on smaller enhancements or report bugs and request features.

Write a notebook

If you’ve written code related to quantitative economics and want to share it with the community, we encourage you to submit it as a Jupyter notebook. We’ve written a guide to help you do so. A gallery of submitted notebooks can be found here.


If you’re new to open source development, here is some information to help you get started.

Contributions to the QuantEcon library should follow the standard open source pattern in regards to forking the code libraries and sending pull requests on GitHub. If you’re not familiar with this kind of development there are many useful tutorials lying around, including:
