Steven Silvester and Jason Grout lead a walkthrough of JupyterLab as a user and as an extension author, explore its capabilities, and offer a demonstration of how to create a simple extension to the environment.
Steven and Jason begin with a brief introduction to and the motivation behind JupyterLab before diving into a live demonstration. They then discuss a third-party extension, a GeoJSON renderer, and show you how to create your own custom extension that adds content to the application. They end with a brief Q&A before offering some lab time for you to individually explore and make custom extensions for JupyterLab.
