400k views for a Jupyter notebook session on a YouTube


My post title is slightly exagerated, but I just happen to watch the latest video (2020-04-17) of Science Étonnante (David Louapre), a popular French YouTube channel on science (I’m not sure what is the English term for “vulgarisation scientifique”…). This time he was discussing a pretty famous 2010 econometric article by Reinhart et Rogoff on the link between debt and GDB gross (the on with an Excel formula error…).

At time 11’ comes a live (accelerated in fact) notebook session in Jupyter lab. 400k views (as of D+7) for a live Jupyter session, perhaps a record!?

From the companion blog article, David Louapre actually got the idea for the video from Cyrille Rossant’s IPython cookbook!
