Introduce yourself!

Hi! :wave: My name is Kevin Markham. I’m the founder of Data School, and I’ve been teaching data science in Python using Jupyter notebooks since 2015.

I use Jupyter notebooks in all of my YouTube tutorial videos, and I found this forum while doing research for my upcoming video series on the Jupyter notebook. :movie_camera:

Nice to meet all of you! :smile:

Hello,
I’m Henri Delebecque.
I discover JupyterHub a few monthes ago, when I installed 8 hubs for educational purposes. I spent a week to install a hub able to dispatch notebooks on 8 VMs, without success. I was short in time, and choose a group of 8 hubs, allocating statically student to each one.

Hi everyone ! I’m Elizabeth :wave: :smile:

I’m currently a PhD student at the Montreal Neurological Institute, and I’m excited to think about how we can use both Jupyter Notebooks and Binder to facilitate open and reproducible publishing.

I’m a new Jovyan, but I’m excited to join and contribute to this great community ! Thanks to everyone for all of your amazing work so far.

Hi there! I’m Enrico, a data scientist at a scale-up based in Amsterdam. I’m doing my best to support Jupyter in local community events, get folks involved in open source and appreciate the power of community-based projects.

Hey all,

I’m Andrew, a final year PhD student in chemistry at the University of Bath (but currently in Scotland writing up).
The majority of my research work has involved Jupyter Notebooks (including reproducible publications).
I have used Notebooks and BinderHub/MyBinder heavily in teaching (developing open educational resources through the pythoninchemistry project.

Hi all, My name is Stephan and I am a graduate student at RPI who is currently working on an effort to explore/implement auto-grading of assignments/labs done in Jupyter notebooks in courses at RPI.

Right now we are evaluating the gofer suite of components (gofer grader, gofer service, and gofer submit) as a possible light-weight architecture. The gofer component repos are available at https://github.com/data-8.

I am new to the area of auto-grading Jupyter notebooks but it appears to be an active area of interest for many in the community and I would be happy to hear about any previous efforts or opinions on the matter.

Hi everyone,

I’m Georgiana, a software engineer from Romania! I started contributing to JupyterHub as part of my Outreachy internship and with the help of the community, I managed to develop JupyterHubTraefikProxy :green_heart:.
I look forward to continue contributing to JupyterHub and I’m very happy I’m part of this amazing community.

My name is Vidar. I’m from Norway, and have worked on Jupyter things full-time since 2016. I’ve contributes in multiple parts, with the main highlights: nbdime (diff/merge of notebooks), nbval (unit testing notebooks), ipywidgets, JupyterLab, pythreejs (3D widgets).

My background is from solid state physics, doing analysis of multi-dimensional data from experiments.

Hi all - I am Chaki and from Boston - been using Jupyter for a while for learning data science / deep learning stuff and am hooked like most of you. Starting to explore the ecosystem and see if there are areas I can contribute. My day jobs are mainly “head of product + design” so am particularly interested in UX and making things even easier especially for true beginners. Any suggestions welcome and see you around here!

Once upon a time I started a little project named MoinMoin…

These days, I’m diving into DS/ML with Python in general, and DevOps Intelligence centered around JupyterHub specifically. The latter resulted in the Debian package I just announced, and will likely continue with some Docker image work, publishing / reporting solutions (to HTML, PDF, and Confluence), and some docs around the workflows using all that (see here for a start).

Hi all, I’m Sebastian, a faculty member at the University of Colorado Boulder teaching and doing research at the interface between the earth and life sciences. We use Jupyter Notebooks (R/python/C++) and Binder extensively for in-class exercises (e.g. in our computational tools class for PhD students in the bio/geosciences) and for the supplemental materials of research publications. I dream of a future where the analytical/computational part of all peer-reviewed research publications is easily reproducible via a repo+binderhub link that ships with each publication (probably not going to happen any time soon but one can dream ;).

Hi, I’m Hannah. @choldgraf told me to stop bothering him on twitter and post here instead :wink:. I’m a computer grad student/adjunct using a the littlest jupyterhub deployment in my “tech skills for psych students” class and so I keep breaking things.

Hello everyone. I’m Joe. I used python for minor scripting 20 years ago, checking in on scientific computing (for me that means numerical) over the years. Four years ago I committed to becoming a pythonista after 25 years inside the Matlab world. A few months later I was introduced to iPython (Jupyter)- was told it was still less than ready for someone like me (somewhat senior- not involved in software development at all). After that insult I dove in and after about a year converted my only open source package (Engineering Vibration Toolbox) to python- blah bad idea. Reframed and have a much better module now. Wrote and released four more and have since become something of an unofficial python evangelist at my university (my intro talk is flooded when ever I have time to give it). I’m someone who shouldn’t have time “for this”, but this is such a fun break from my “day job” that I can’t resist developing. It’s a great time to be a coder! https://github.com/josephcslater

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…
