Overview of this book

Jupyter has garnered a strong interest in the data science community of late, as it makes common data processing and analysis tasks much simpler. This book is for data science professionals who want to master various tasks related to Jupyter to create efficient, easy-to-share, scientific applications. The book starts with recipes on installing and running the Jupyter Notebook system on various platforms and configuring the various packages that can be used with it. You will then see how you can implement different programming languages and frameworks, such as Python, R, Julia, JavaScript, Scala, and Spark on your Jupyter Notebook. This book contains intuitive recipes on building interactive widgets to manipulate and visualize data in real time, sharing your code, creating a multi-user environment, and organizing your notebook. You will then get hands-on experience with Jupyter Labs, microservices, and deploying them on the web. By the end of this book, you will have taken your knowledge of Jupyter to the next level to perform all key tasks associated with it.

Sharing your Notebook through a public server

Currently there is one hosting company that allows you to host your Notebooks for free: GitHub. GitHub is the standard web provider for source control (GIT source control) systems. Source control is used to maintain historical versions of your files to allow you to retrace your steps.

GitHub's implementation includes all the tools that you need to use in your Notebook, already installed on the server. For example, to use R programming in your Notebook, you would have had to install the R tool set on your machine and possibly some of the packages used by your script. But GitHub has already done all of these steps.

How to do it...

  1. In order to host your Notebook on GitHub, go to the GitHub website and sign up for a free website.
  2. Once logged in you are provided with a website that can be added to. If you have development tools to use (git push commands are programmer commands to store files on a git server) you can do that or simply drag and drop your...
