Minot Room 503 | Countway Library

Jupyter Notebooks is an open source application that enables users to create interactive, shareable notebooks that contain live code, equations, visualizations, and text. This computational notebook supports interactive data science and scientific computing across all programming languages.

Come learn more about Jupyter, and see how your colleagues at Harvard are already using it.

This session will feature how open source software and technologies can be used to promote transparency, reusability, and reproducibility. 

Part 1: Building Figures for Your Manuscript -- an interactive demonstration
