UBC JupyterDay 2019


Event Date & Time

  • August 27, 2019
    10:00 am - 4:30 pm

Event Description

Jupyter is a web application for producing computational narratives: a notebook in the browser which runs code and renders text, mathematical notation, images and videos. Jupyter notebooks are a powerful open source tool for scientific computing and reproducible research.

The Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences (PIMS) hosts Jupyter notebooks on syzygy.ca and JupyterDay is an opportunity for instructors, researchers and students at UBC to share their Jupyter experiences and to learn about new Jupyter tools.
