Event description

Description

Join PyLadies at Bloomberg for an evening of knowledge sharing, installs, and data science! Jupyter, the evolution of IPython and the IPython Notebook, is a popular interactive computing environment used in data science and scientific computing. You will receive an overview of Jupyter's features and develop an understanding of when to use Jupyter and why. You will also learn about several intermediate topics including a preview of JupyterLab- the next evolution of the Jupyter ecosystem- and other projects in the development pipeline, how to install the R kernel, and how run Python and R in the same notebook.


The evening will begin with a short presentation then we'll dive into the hands-on portion where users will install Jupyter and get started with basic commands, visualizations, and keyboard shortcuts. Practice exercises will be available to attendees to work on during the evening and attendees are encouraged to work in pairs and small groups. Knowledge of GitHub and GitHub workflows is recommended but not required.

Experienced users encouraged to volunteer as TAs for the evening!
