UBC JupyterDay 2018


Jupyter is web application for producing computational narratives: a notebook in the browser which runs code and renders text, mathematical notation, images and videos. Jupyter notebooks are a powerful open source tool for scientific computing and reproducible research.


The Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences (PIMS) hosts Jupyter notebooks on syzygy.ca and JupyterDay is an opportunity for instructors, researchers and students at UBC to share their Jupyter experiences and to learn about new Jupyter tools.


UBC JupyterDay 2018 is hosted by the UBC Department of Mathematics and PIMS. The event takes place in the newly renovated Undergraduate Mathematics Computer Lab (LSK 121) designed for the collaborative teaching and learning of computation and data science.
