Jupyter Notebook: What’s in it for You
This month our visiting speaker, Douglas Starnes, hails from sunny, exotic Memphis and is going to help us understand why Jupyter Notebooks might be useful for YOU: Different types of development need different tools. Data science does not always lend itself to the edit and run style of development most of us are familiar with. Inspired by IPython, Jupyter notebook fills this need by providing an interactive computing environment in which data scientists can experiment and iterate quickly. Also, it's browser based so it is just as easy to use it on a local machine as it is remotely. Jupyter notebook also archives each session which can be shared with others enabling reproducible experiments. And don't let the name, IPython fool you, it's for more than just Python. Jupyter notebook supports over 40 languages including R, Julia and Scala. Douglas Starnes is a polyglot ninja and tech community influencer in the Memphis area making stuff that works on more than just the web. He specializes in the fields of mobile, data science and machine learning. Douglas is a co-director of the Memphis Python User Group and a board member of the Memphis .NET User Group. He is a frequent conference speaker who has delivered more than 30 featured presentations at more than 20 conferences over the past 7 years in a variety of citiies across the southeast United States. In addition, Douglas is a Pluralsight author and active participant in local user groups. He has also served as an organizer for PyTennessee, PyOhio and TechCampMemphis. Outside of being a geek Douglas is a trained composer, aspiring triathlete and avid Lego collector. ** This meeting does not yet have a sponsor.
