For a hands-on experience with using Jupyter Notebooks for teaching, consider attending our free pre-conference workshops on May 18 from 1-4pm, in Canaday Library 315 at Bryn Mawr College. Computers will be provided, or participants can bring wireless Internet enabled laptops if they prefer. (We will be using Bryn Mawr College’s installation of Jupyter Notebooks, so you will not need to install any software.)
Please register here so that we can create any accounts needed for you in advance.
An Introduction to Jupyter Notebooks, by Mark Matlin of Bryn Mawr College
The Jupyter notebook is a programming environment that runs in a web browser. It allows users to integrate Python code, bash shell commands, and human readable text in ways that ease experimentation with and demonstration of code. This two-hour workshop is based on lessons from Software Carpentry and Data Carpentry. Participants will learn basics of the Python programming language and how it is used for data management, analysis, and visualization. There are no pre-requisites, and the materials assume no prior knowledge about the tools.
