What you'll learn

  • Explore tools, workflows, and patterns for the Jupyter ecosystem


The Jupyter ecosystem gives users an ever-growing set of superpowers for working with data. Jupyter enables users to interactively explore and visualize data, schedule jobs, and share their work in reproducible notebooks. Jupyter’s open standards, formats, and protocols make all this possible.

M Pacer discusses two meanings of “Talking with Jupyter”: talking to others with Jupyter notebooks and talking to Jupyter in the language of its standards, formats, and protocols. M describes tools, workflows, and patterns that make both kinds of talking with Jupyter easier while unlocking new ways of interacting with the Jupyter ecosystem.
