Project Jupyter has developed and supported the interactive computing products Jupyter Notebook, Jupyter Hub, and Jupyter Lab.

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. Notebooks support interactive data science and scientific computing across all programming languages via the development of open-source software.

Join your colleagues for a few demonstrations on how open source software and technologies are being used to promote transparency, reusability, and reproducibility.
