JupyterDay Hawaii 2016

Aloha! Project Jupyter and PyHawaii are pleased to announce the first JupyterDay in Hawaii on Saturday, October 29, 2016 from 12:00pm-4pm at the Manoa Innovation Center.

JupyterDay Hawaii is an afternoon workshop dedicated to the free and open-source Jupyter Notebook and its underlying architecture. The objective of this afternoon workshop is to showcase Jupyter’s capabilities and to foster creative and productive dialogues on how various Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math (STEAM) fields can leverage the Jupyter notebook in their workflow.

JupyterDay Hawaii is free and open to the public, especially members of the programming community, practitioners, students, academia, and researchers. We require registration to ensure we have enough food and seating. Complimentary refreshments and pupus will be provided. Registration is open now and will only take a minute, register here.

What is Jupyter?

The Jupyter Notebook, formerly known as IPython, "is a web application that allows you to create and share documents that contain live code, equations, visualizations and explanatory text. Uses include: data cleaning and transformation, numerical simulation, statistical modeling, machine learning and much more."
Source: https://jupyter.org

Users can create “notebooks” with readable inputs such as code and text elements in order to conduct data analysis work for science, math, data science, and other analytical purposes. The notebooks are “both human-readable documents containing the analysis description and the results (figures, tables, etc..) as well as executable documents which can be run to perform data analysis.”

So what will we be doing?

That's an excellent question! We will have three simultaneous tracks covering a diverse set of topics, including:

  • How to get started with Jupyter and other introductory topics

  • Using Jupyter in the hard and soft sciences

  • Using Jupyter to teach

You are invited to submit a presentaton proposal to present at JupyterDay Hawaii. This is a great opportunity for students, local practitioners, programmers, and researchers to meet other like-minded folks who want to leverage and expand their use of Jupyter.

Our keynote presenters will cover:

  • Getting started with Jupyter and GitHub

  • Creating a presentation using Jupyter’s slideshow feature

  • Jupyter Basics 101 tutorials

Our tentative schedule is as follows:

12:00PM-1:25PM: Opening Remarks & Getting Started with Jupyter + Refreshments, heavy pupus will be provided
1:30PM-1:55PM: First Session
2:00PM-2:25PM: Second Session
2:30PM-2:55PM: Third Session
3:00PM-4:00PM: Final Tech Talks/Presentations & Closing Remarks

Check our complimentary registration portal for the latest updates and speaker announcements.

How can I be a part of it?

If you are interested in being a part of the event, there are several opportunities to do so. You can choose to either submit a proposal for a Jupyter related topic or volunteer to be a part of the team. Volunteers should contact the organizer(s)at jupyterdayhawaii[at]gmail.com.

How can my organization be a part of it?

If your organization would like to give back to the open source community, please consider sponsoring JupyterDay. We are currently looking for sponsors to help with refreshments (e.g. water, cookies, etc.) for the event and looking for organizations to help market the event to their team(s) and network(s). If you are interested in any of these opportunities, please contact the organizer, jupyterdayhawaii[at]gmail.com, for further information.
