Keep your code alive - lessons from the QuTiP project

Shahnawaz Ahmed (Wallenberg Centre for Quantum Technology)

The quantum toolbox in Python (QuTiP) is a widely used tool for simulating quantum physics. In this talk we will discuss QuTiP's journey from a python project started by two Ph.D. students to a community of developers and users spread all across the globe. The talk will focus on building an open-source community and how QuTiP was kept alive through contributions from the community, Google summer of Code and different academic and non-academic funding opportunities.
