Event Description

Project Jupyter is a collaborative effort to create open source software and open standards for interactive computing and data analysis. From executing textbook examples for university students  to visualizing the behavior of financial algorithms in a cloud backtesting service to publishing reproducible analyses of groundbreaking science, Jupyter impacts the daily work of people seeking insights across disciplines.

In this talk, Peter Parente will outline the motivation and history of the project, give live demonstrations of key Jupyter components (e.g., Jupyter Notebook, nbviewer, JupyterLab), highlight some exciting use cases in the broader Jupyter community, and help you get started with Jupyter in your own work.

Note: Following the talk Q&A, Paco Nathan, Director of the Learning Group at O'Reilly Media, will briefly discuss what he and O'Reilly are doing with regard to human in the loop topics and interactive computing, followed by Q&A.
