What you'll learn

  • Explore Jupyter tools that allow you to display notebook-style content in a more discoverable and reader-friendly form


Jupyter notebooks are a fantastic way to interweave conceptual ideas and computation. However, they require Jupyter software to be installed in order to read and interact with these notebooks. Is there a way to package and share work along more traditional venues, such as an online book or website?

Chris Holdgraf shares recent tools from the Jupyter project in partnership with UC Berkeley that facilitate communication with Jupyter and get us closer to displaying notebook-style content in a more discoverable and reader-friendly form—allowing you to turn collections of notebooks into an online book and connect this content with the cloud in order to make your online content interactive.

Chris Holdgraf is a data science fellow at the Berkeley Institute for Data Science and a community architect at the Data Science Education Program at UC Berkeley. His background is in cognitive and computational neuroscience, where he used predictive models to understand the auditory system in the human brain. He’s interested in the boundary between technology, open source software, and scientific workflows, as well as creating new pathways for this kind of work in science and the academy. He’s a core member of Project Jupyter, specifically working with JupyterHub and Binder, two open source projects that make it easier for researchers and educators to do their work in the cloud. He works on these core tools, along with research and educational projects that use these tools at Berkeley and in the broader open science community.
