Using Jupyter for Research and Collaboration

May 31 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

The Jupyter notebook can be a programming and data analysis tool, but it can also be a method to document and save an analysis workflow, to share analysis routines and workflow with peers, and to publicize the data analysis contained in articles.  Notebooks store and encapsulate computational thinking and processes in a manner that allows them to be retrieved, re-used, and distributed to others. This class will demonstrate how to take advantage of Jupyter for research and collaboration, including methods…

Using Jupyter for Education

May 31 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Jupyter tools are increasingly being used for educational purposes.  With Jupyter notebooks, teachers can share documents that are interactive and combine narrative text, code, multimedia, equations, and data analysis and visualization.  With nbgrader, they can create gradable notebooks and automate the distribution/grading process, and with JupyterHub, they can provide a Jupyter environment to students that doesn’t place any demands on the students’ computational sophistication or resource availability.  This class will take an interactive tour through several educational Jupyter notebooks from…
