PYPTUG Monthly Meeting (December): Training Tools - Utilizing Jupyter Notebooks


Come join PYPTUG at out next monthly meeting (Deceber 18th 2018) to learn more about the Python programming language, modules and tools. Python is the language to learn if you've never programmed before, and at the other end, it is also a tool that no expert would do without.

Main talk:     Training Tools - Utilizing Jupyter Notebooks
presented by Joan Pharr

Joan Pharr is currently a Lead Business Analyst at Valassis Digital. On the side she seeks to save the world with math, facts and a penchant for comedy. Collaborating with others to solve problems and share stories is one of the her favorite aspects of PyData.

Jupyter Notebooks can be a great tool for teaching and learning in a corporate setting. In this talk I’ll cover three ways I’ve incorporated Jupyter Notebooks into my daily routine:
(1) Using notebooks as templates with information, questions and examples for training new team members. 
(2) Collecting notebooks to share code for infrequent requests across our team. 
(3)  Using notebooks to try new techniques, play with new packages, and quickly test new code.

Lightning talks!

We will have some time for extemporaneous "lightning talks" of 5-10 minute duration. If you'd like to do one, some suggestions of talks were provided here, if you are looking for inspiration. Or talk about a project you are working on.
