Jupyter notebook is a web application for producing computational narratives: a notebook in the browser which runs code and renders text, mathematical notation, images and videos. While Jupyter notebook is a powerful open source tool for scientific computing and reproducible research, it has also emerged as a valuable teaching tool for scientific computing and data science.

Come join other instructors, researchers and students at UBC to share their Jupyter teaching experiences and to learn about new Jupyter tools!

  • Day 1 (Aug 12) Theme: Getting started teaching with Jupyter
