March Followup

It’s time again for an update after the meeting. Somewhat better turnout than last month (by one person). The talk was short but somewhat interesting. Of course, finding a practical usage case is entirely based on what you do for a living.

Interestingly enough, after the meeting, while I was getting the slides into a format for the website, I ran across a github project that covered a number of usage cases for Jupyter Notebooks. As a matter of fact, it is a supplement to an O’Reilly book - Mining the Social Web which is available via the notebook viewer.

We also discussed the creation of presentations with something other than office suites like MS Office or Libre Office. As document freedom day is coming up, I thought trying the talk via a browser based method would be good. It worked well enough that I’d be interested in doing it that way again. The talk presentation was done in landslide and it works pretty well, source in Markdown, a short build process and you have a presentation. The presentation is available from the downloads page or you can just view it right now.
