UBC JupyterDay 2018

The Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences (PIMS) and UBC Department of Mathematics invite you to UBC JupyterDay 2018! Jupyter is an open web application for producing computational narratives: a notebook in the browser which runs code and renders text, mathematical notation, images and videos. JupyterDay is an opportunity for instructors, researchers and students at UBC to share their Jupyter experiences and to learn about new Jupyter tools.
