Project Jupyter for User-Centered Data Science

Abstract Project Jupyter is an open-source project that exists to develop
software, open standards, and services for interactive and reproducible
computing. The main application developed by the project is the Jupyter
Notebook, a web-application that allows users to create documents that
combine live code with narrative text, mathematical equations, and
visualizations. Since its creation in 2011, the Jupyter Notebook has become
a widely-used, open standard for developing, sharing, communicating, and
reproducing computational work in scientific computing and data science.

In this talk I will discuss how Jupyter emerged out of Python’s scientific
computing community and describe the main ideas upon which Jupyter is
founded, along with their motivation and concrete examples of how they work
out in practice. These examples will be drawn from the broader usage of
Jupyter, as well ongoing work on JupyterLab, JupyterHub, Altair and Binder.

Speaker Bio Brian Granger is a Physics Professor at Cal Poly San Luis
Obispo. He is the co-creator of Project Jupyter, the widely used
open-source interactive notebook application, and Altair, a statistical
visualization library for Python. He is an advocate for open-science,
open-data and open-source software.
