Developer Guide#

Welcome to the aeon developer guide. This guide is intended for new developers and current developers who want to learn about specific topics for code and non-code developments.

For a step-by-step guide for setting up a development version of aeon and creating a pull request, see the contributing guide. At any point during the process, feel free to post questions on Slack or ask core developers for help.

aeon aims to follow the scikit-learn API and conventions whenever possible. If you’re new to scikit-learn, take a look at their getting-started guide. If you’re already familiar with scikit-learn, you may still learn something new from their developer’s guide.
