The new interactive features of the IPython 2.0 notebook

Cyrille Rossant

Wed 27 9 a.m.–10:30 a.m. in IFM


IPython 2.0 brought truly interactive features in the Web-based notebook. It is now possible to control the execution of Python functions with graphical widgets, to interface Python code with modern Javascript visualization libraries, or to implement custom Javascript widgets interacting with the IPython kernel in real time. In this hands-on advanced tutorial, we will cover all those cases with concrete examples.

Additional notes: Participants are expected to have basic knowledge of the IPython notebook (and to have ipython >= 2.0.0 already installed on their laptops). Knowledge of Javascript, although not required, is a plus.
