We are excited to announce the first JupyterDay Conference in New York City on October 24, 2015 from 9:00am-5:00pm (EST). The event will be held at ImpactHub and registration can be found on EventBriteOverview
JupyterDay NYC is a single-day conference on the open-source Jupyter/IPython Notebook (http://jupyter.org) and its underlying architecture. This event is being organized by the core Jupyter/IPython project contributors, some of whom will be present at the conference.
The event will feature speakers who are using the Jupyter Notebook and its architecture in interesting ways. This includes speakers from IBM, Bloomberg, BuzzFeed, Janelia Labs, Bryn Mawr and other local NYC and international companies.
The event is oriented toward individuals and organizations who are already using the notebook, but new users are also encouraged to attend. The main talks of the day will be intermixed with times for informal discussions and lightning talks (sign up in person). There will also be talks covering the current and future roadmap of the project.
Lunch and coffee will be served.Speakers Brian Granger, Cal Poly
Title:The current and future state of Project Jupyter
Abstract:Brian is one of the founders and leaders of Project Jupyter. In this talk he will introduce the project and describe current and upcoming work in the community.Zach Schwartz, O'Reilly Media
Title:Thebe: Jupyter Outside Notebooks
Abstract:Zach will talk about how Thebe turns code blocks on a web page into interactive code examples that you and your visitors can edit and execute. He will discuss how they're using jupyter, docker, tmpnb, and other open source tools to improve the educational experience, and how you can use them on your own site.Doug Blank, Bryn Mawr
Title:Changing Education with Jupyter
Abstract:Doug Blank is a professor of Computer Science at Bryn Mawr College, an all-women's college outside of Philadelphia. He has been using Jupyter in the classroom since its inception to teach a variety of subjects, and he has created many extensions and new language kernels for the Notebook. In this talk, he will describe some of the more interesting uses of Jupyter in the classroom.Jeremy Singer-Vine, BuzzFeed
Title:Jupyter Notebooks for Transparent, Reproducible Journalism
Abstract:In this talk, Jeremy will describe how Jupyter fits into BuzzFeed News' reproducible-data-journalism workflow. He'll also share some tips and tricks they've learned along the way.Jeremy Freeman, Janelia Labs
Title:Sharing and reproducing computation with Jupyter and Binder
Abstract:Open science and open development relies on our ability to freely share and reproduce our work. Binder is an open-source system that lets anyone take Jupyter notebooks from a GitHub repository and bundle them into an executable environment that can be launched from Github by clicking a badge. I will describe how Binder works now, how it’s being used, and where we hope to take it in the future.Peter Parente, IBM
Title:Jupyter Incubator: What’s Cooking?
Abstract:Over the last few months the Jupyter community has embraced a new incubation process. IBM has stewarded four proposals through the process. In this session, IBM will provide a quick overview of the incubation process and a quick look at a few projects under incubation. Our goal is to raise awareness for follow-on collaborations.Sylvain Corlay, Bloomberg
Title:The bqplot visualization package
Abstract:Sylvain will dsecribe the newly released bqplot visualization package from Bloomberg. This visualization library expresses the abstractions of Wilkinson's "The Grammar of Graphics" as interactive IPython widgets.Lorena Barba, George Washington University Title: TBA Schedule
