Getting Started with Jupyter Notebook 5 and Python

by Douglas Starnes

Jupyter Notebook is an interactive computing environment that transcends code, and it has completely disrupted the way that many Python developers work and think about software development. This course shows how you can let it do the same for you.

What you'll learn

Python serves many different type of developers, so why should all Python developers use the same development tool? This course, Getting Started with Jupyter Notebook 5 and Python, explores Jupyter Notebook, an essential tool for data, prototyping, and learning that belongs in every Python developer’s toolbox. First, you'll explore the foundations of Jupyter Notebook, including installation and interface navigation. Next, you’ll learn how to go beyond the code and supplement notebooks with rich content such as markdown, visualizations, and data formatting. Finally, you’ll see how to make interactive UIs that communicate, and how to make your ideas available to others. By the end of this course, you’ll have the skills necessary to assemble Jupyter notebooks that can help tell your Python story to others, and help you understand the Python stories of your colleagues.
