Philly ETE 2016 #28 – Jason Grout – Interactive Computing with Jupyter: Past, Present, and Future

Tags: , ,


Jupyter (formerly part of IPython) is a popular tool for interactively exploring and sharing computational ideas. The Jupyter project provides a consistent environment for dozens of languages, including Python, Julia, and R. The Jupyter web notebook makes it easy to use interactive controls to manipulate and visualize computations and provides a widely-used format for documents that include both code and exposition.

In this talk, we will give a brief overview of the Jupyter ecosystem and show examples of how Jupyter fosters interactive exploration and collaboration. We will also look at current and future developments in the platform, including the current rewrite of the notebook.
