04-28, 10:15–11:00 (America/Los_Angeles), Rainier

Do you wish there was an easier way to get started with Python? Cloud notebook services in general enable you to start coding in Python immediately—anytime and anywhere you have an internet connection. Don’t worry about setting up environments; with cloud notebooks, you can get started without any installation. Spin up your awesome data science projects directly from your browser with all the packages and computing power you need.

In this talk, I’ll show you how to use Anaconda Notebooks to quickly get started with Python in the cloud. Anaconda Notebooks is a managed Jupyter notebook service that enables you to quickly get coding anywhere without installing anything. Empowered by Intake, a data catalog library, Anaconda Notebooks offers a simple and consistent user interface for loading data, regardless of its format or location. All the data knowledge is consolidated in one place! What’s more? Pre-loaded with HvPlot, Panel, and many other data science packages, Anaconda Notebooks allows you to deploy your data visualization dashboards or data apps with only a few lines of code.

In this talk, you will learn how to:
- Create and run interactive notebooks with Anaconda Notebooks
- Use built-in environments and build customized environments based on your needs
- Utilize a simple user interface to load data, read data from existing data catalogs, and create your own data catalog to share your data with the world
- Turn an Anaconda Notebooks into a dashboard or a data app
