Introduction to Programming Notebooks

A notebook environment is an increasingly popular way to develop and share code. This workshop will introduce two of the most popular types of notebooks: Jupyter and Colab. We will briefly discuss the literate programming paradigm, then examine the main features that are common to both platforms. In the process, we will see examples of typical applications and ways that the notebook environments have been expanded to code beyond simple Python scripts. Applications to be demonstrated will include data visualization, image analysis, machine learning, text analysis, Linked Data SPARQL queries, and Databricks.
