Webinar: Jupyter as a Gateway for Scientific Collaboration and Education

Key Info
Description - a brief synopsis, abstract or summary of what the learning resource is about: 

Project Jupyter, evolved from the IPython environment, provides a platform for interactive computing that is widely used today in research, education, journalism, and industry. The core premise of the Jupyter architecture is to design tools around the experience of interactive computing, building an environment, protocol, file format and libraries optimized for the computational process when there is a human in the loop, in a live iteration with ideas and data assisted by the computer.

The Jupyter Notebook, a system that allows users to compose rich documents that combine narrative text and mathematics together with live code and the output of computations in any format compatible with a web browser (plots, animations, audio, video, etc.), provides a foundation for scientific collaboration. The next generation of the Jupyter web interface, JupyterLab, will combine in a single user interface not only the notebook but multiple other tools to access Jupyter services and remote computational resources and data.  A flexible and responsive UI allows the user to mix Notebooks, terminals, text editors, graphical consoles and more, presenting in a single, unified environment the tools needed to work with a remote environment.  Furthermore, the entire design is extensible and based on plugins that interoperate via open APIs, making it possible to design new plugins tailored to specific types of data or user needs.

JupyterHub enables Jupyter Notebook and JupyterLab to be used by groups of users for research collaboration and education. We believe JupyterHub provides a foundation on which to build modern scientific gateways that support a wide range of user scenarios, from interactive data exploration in high-level languages like Python, Julia or R, to the education of researchers and students whose work relies on traditional HPC resources.

The presenter discusses the benefits and applications of Jupyter Notebooks.
