Nbgrader: a tool for creating and grading assignments in the Jupyter notebook


Jessica Hamrick is a Research Scientist at DeepMind in London, having recently completed her Ph.D. in Psychology at the University of California, Berkeley working with Tom Griffiths. Previously, she received her M.Eng. in Computer Science from MIT working with Josh Tenenbaum. Jessica's research focuses on model-based reasoning and planning, situated at the intersection of cognitive science, machine learning, and AI. In addition to research, Jessica is involved in several open source projects including Project Jupyter. Jessica is both a member of the Project Jupyter steering committee, and is the lead maintainer of nbgrader, a tool for grading Jupyter notebook assignments.

Nicolas M. Thiéry is Professor at the Laboratoire de Recherche en
Informatique of Université Paris Sud. His teaching ranges from
introductory programming (with C++, in Jupyter) to computational
methods in algebra (with SageMath, in Jupyter). His research at the
borderline between Math and Computer Science, studying algebraic
combinatorics with the help of computer exploration. He has been
promoting software sharing for algebraic Combinatorics since 2000 and
contributing to SageMath since 2008. To help fund the computational
math software and Jupyter ecosystems, he leads the OpenDreamKit
European project [masked]).
