In this session, Markus Schanta will introduce JupyterLab as a data science/research environment and show off its most useful features. He will also show you how to set up your own instance of JupyterLab either locally or in the cloud on Amazon AWS.
The Jupyter notebook is an open-source web application that allows you to create and share documents that contain live code, equations, visualizations and narrative text. It's a great research environment for finance and machine learning applications.
The talk does not require extensive knowledge of Python, Jupyter or AWS. We will aim to provide useful information for beginners as well as people who are already somewhat familiar with these technologies.
All the coding will be published live to GitHub, so you can follow on your own laptop if you wish, or revisit afterwards.
