About this event

  • 4 hours 30 minutes
  • Mobile eTicket

In recent years, the Jupyter Notebook web application has been increasingly present in collaborative research, scientific dissemination and education in various fields. With a simple and intuitive graphical interface, Jupyter allows the user to run code line by line interactively, as well as add equations, graphics and visualizations, and even text in a single document.

In this course, we will introduce you to the JupyterLab platform: a practical way to use Jupyter, as well as other GUIs, directly on the Compute Canada clusters. Not to be missed if interactivity is what you need to start using our cutting-edge scientific computing platforms!

Note: there will be a lunch break of about one hour - the lunch is not included.
