Jupyter widgets allow you to build user interfaces with graphical controls inside a Jupyter notebook and provide a framework for building custom controls. Sylvain Corlay and Jason Grout demonstrate how to use Jupyter widgets effectively for interactive computing, explore the ecosystem of custom controls, and walk you through building your own control.

Location: Murray Hill Level: Intermediate
Sylvain Corlay (QuantStack), Johan Mabille (QuantStack)
Xeus takes on the burden of implementing the Jupyter kernel protocol so that kernel authors can focus on more easily implementing the language-specific part of the kernel and support features, such as autocomplete or interactive widgets. Sylvain Corlay and Johan Mabille showcase a new C++ kernel based on the Cling interpreter built with xeus. Read more.
