[DO NOT USE] Introduction to Jupyter Notebooks

Welcome to this course on the Introduction to Jupyter Notebooks. In this course, we will get familiar with one of the best open-source software platforms for interactive computing. We will learn what Jupyter Notebooks are used for and explore a number of advanced and powerful features that we can leverage in our own projects. A basic familiarity with Python is assumed. It is the primary language we will use to explore Jupyter. We hope you enjoy this course as much as we loved creating it!

[DO NOT USE] Introduction to Jupyter Notebooks

Duration (mins)


5.0 / 5


Task List

We will cover the following tasks in 25 minutes:

Navigating the Jupyter Console and Dashboard

In this chapter, we will explore the various navigational features of the Jupyter notebook interface. From the console, we will launch the Python browser module and explore the Dashboard. Next, we’ll run an existing notebook, navigate through each option provided on the navigational interface.

Writing and Running code

Learn how to modify, add, delete, and run cells and understand why and how to restart or interrupt the kernel.

Working with External Code

Learn how Jupyter’s kernels makes it easy to incorporate external code from sources such as the Internet and command-line.

Beyond Plain Python

Learn how to use Jupyter-specific commands for interactive object introspection.

About the Host (Snehan Kekre)

Snehan hosts Machine Learning and Data Sciences projects at Rhyme. He is in his senior year of university at the Minerva Schools at KGI, studying Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence. When not applying computational and quantitative methods to identify the structures shaping the world around him, he can sometimes be seen trekking in the mountains of Nepal.

Frequently Asked Questions

In Rhyme, all projects are completely hands-on. You don't just passively watch someone else. You use the software directly while following the host's (Snehan Kekre) instructions. Using the software is the only way to achieve mastery. With the "Live Guide" option, you can ask for help and get immediate response.
Nothing! Just join through your web browser. Your host (Snehan Kekre) has already installed all required software and configured all data.
You can go to https://rhyme.com/for-companies, sign up for free, and follow this visual guide How to use Rhyme to create your own projects. If you have custom needs or company-specific environment, please email us at help@rhyme.com
Absolutely. We offer Rhyme for workgroups as well larger departments and companies. Universities, academies, and bootcamps can also buy Rhyme for their settings. You can select projects and trainings that are mission critical for you and, as well, author your own that reflect your own needs and tech environments. Please email us at help@rhyme.com
Rhyme's visual instructions are somewhat helpful for reading impairments. The Rhyme interface has features like resolution and zoom that are slightly helpful for visual impairment. And, we are currently developing a close-caption functionality to help with hearing impairment. Most of the accessibility options of the cloud desktop's operating system or the specific application can also be used in Rhyme. However, we still have a lot of work to do. If you have suggestions for accessibility, please email us at accessibility@rhyme.com
We started with windows and linux cloud desktops because they have the most flexibility in teaching any software (desktop or web). However, web applications like Salesforce can run directly through a virtual browser. And, others like Jupyter and RStudio can run on containers and be accessed by virtual browsers. We are currently working on such features where such web applications won't need to run through cloud desktops. But, the rest of the Rhyme learning, authoring, and monitoring interfaces will remain the same.
Please email us at help@rhyme.com and we'll respond to you within one business day.
