The Jupyter Notebook allows you to create and share documents that contain live code, equations, visualizations, and explanatory text. The Jupyter stack is built from the ground up to be extensible and hackable. The Developer Advocacy team at IBM Watson Data Platform has developed PixieDust, an open source library of useful time-saving and anxiety-reducing tools designed to ease the pain of charting, saving data to the cloud, and exposing Python data structures to Scala code.
Raj explains how the team built mapping into PixieDust, putting data from Apache Spark-based analytics on maps using Mapbox GL.
This session is sponsored by IBM.
