Interactive computing environment (Jupyter)

Jupyter offers interactive environments for hosting R, python, and a number of other languages for creating reproducible software experiment.


Project Jupyter exists to develop open-source software, open-standards, and services for interactive computing across dozens of programming languages.  

There are two main components:


JupyterLab is a web-based interactive development environment for Jupyter notebooks, code, and data. JupyterLab is flexible: configure and arrange the user interface to support a wide range of workflows in data science, scientific computing, and machine learning. JupyterLab is extensible and modular: write plugins that add new components and integrate with existing ones.

Jupyter Notebook

The Jupyter Notebook is an open-source web application that allows you to create and share documents that contain live code, equations, visualizations and narrative text. Uses include: data cleaning and transformation, numerical simulation, statistical modeling, data visualization, machine learning, and much more.

Where do I go for help?

Olexandr can assist in the following areas:

  • Advice on installation
  • User training
  • Best practice in using Jupyter efficiently
  • Helping with sharing the reproducible experiments

Email Olexandr directly for advice.

Alternatively Olexandr is a founder of the Research Software Microsoft Team. This is free to join and offers open discussions on all aspects of research software development.
