Dr. Barba hosts a book sprint to create Jupyter handbook

December 17, 2018

On November 28–29, Dr. Lorena Barba (MAE) hosted 15 researchers, educators, and engineering faculty for a book sprint: in two and a half days, they collaboratively wrote the first draft of a Handbook for Teaching and Learning with Jupyter.  The event was supported by a grant from Bloomberg to Project Jupyter to fund Jupyter Community Workshops; Dr. Barba’s proposal was one of only two funded this year.  The open book continues to be edited and added to via an open-development model on GitHub.
