Introduce yourself!

Hello, I’m Kevin. I spend my time in and around Enterprise Gateway - which essentially distributes kernels across compute clusters. Since it directly depends on Notebook and jupyter_client, I’ve also spent quite a lot of time understanding those projects with respect to kernel management.

Magnus Sälgö from Sweden play around with Wikidata and like what I see of Jupyter… I can see Jupyter as an excellent way to make access to Open Data easier…

Hi! I am Fabien Maussion, a climate scientist and glaciologist. I use Jupyter Notebooks a lot for teaching, and more recently also mybinder for education and outreach (http://edu.oggm.org). I’d like to have “my own” JupyterHub on the cloud, and I wish I didn’t have to do it myself but it looks like I’m gonna have to, if I want one.

Hi Fabien

So are you struggling to get your institution to run notebooks too? I think it could be useful if we try to pool ideas about how to try lobbying for such things (I’ve been failing to persuade my institution to run one for over four years now, since back when they were IPython notebooks!)

Hey @fmaussion and @psychemedia - wanna continue that particular thread here: Deploying JupyterHub at your institution ? I think that’s a common situation many of us are in!

Hi, I am Bouarfa, PhD in Physics and owner of a small sized IT company. My hobby is designing Mathematical Model for Quantitative Finance. This month I have hired a freelancer for setting up jupyterhub on google cloud. Hope he will complete the job. This jupyter environment is perfect for my hobby because I can hire simultaneously several python developers in order to build the Algorithm based on the mathematical model.

Hi,
I’m Christian and I’m trying for years now to introduce and Python and Jupyter Notebooks into courses at the Munich University for Applied Sciences (mainly in the field of digital signal processing).
What has failed for me so far:

  • Getting students to install a local copy of Matlab or Python (I’ve completely switched to Python a few years ago) and work with code snippets
  • Same, only with IPython / Jupyter Notebooks
  • Using Wakari / Binder / … - services were unavailable all the time
  • Using servers at the university due to lack of support and hardware. At least we got a JupyterHub installation running, complemented by some scripts to aid the administration of courses and distribution of material. Then we had to trash everything.

Currently, I’m trying Microsoft’s Azure Notebook server.

Combined with very dynamic development of the Jupyter ecosystem, the process has been very frustrating at times.

Still, I think Jupyter Notebooks are one of the best ideas since the inventions of the overhead projector!

You can find my projects at pyFDA (DSP filter tool) and dsp_fpga (documents and notebooks for my DSP lecture, German only).

Cheers,
Christian

Greetings! I’m eager to get back in touch with some old friends and hopefully new as well… I’ve been bouncing between mildly-annoyed researcher and programmer / educator trying to improve research process for over two decades now.

Currently, I find myself at a start-up called Gigantum where we’re working on a different approach to coordinating data science tools - Jupyter being central among them. I’m joining to explore potential for collaboration with the community, starting with ideas about “user” (aka scientist) research.

Hello,
I’m John. I work as a Management Analyst for a non-profit Health Information Exchange. Our team unofficially adopted Jupyter Lab as our workspace in conjunction with GitHub for version control and project management. We work with a non-sql database in a custom Python environment. We refer to it as ‘Rattlesnake’ as our vendor has added custom packages and functions with structure and rulesets we have to use.

How are you all! I am alvin working at Arizona State University. I am very new to the whole juptyerverse. I am working on setting up jupyterhub on jetstream/xsede. This will be for use with an online course. I am not the instructor just the technical support aka F.N.I.T. Guy (Friendly Neighborhood Information Technology Guy). That being said I am a Jupyternoob, which is why I am here. I want to thank you all in advance for any help you can offer.

cheers!

Hi, I’m Joe. I’ve been working with Python since 2011 and Jupyter since 2015. I’m a data engineer and am currently writing a book for Packt Publishing, titled Mastering JupyterLab which should be published sometime in Q4 2019. I could really use some JupyterLab pros to bounce ideas off of. See you on the boards!
