CCIT’s Cyberinfrastructure Technology Integration (CITI) group is proud to announce the addition of Jupyter to the Palmetto Cluster and Clemson’s research computing environment. Jupyter is a free, open-source, web-application that offers a wealth of possibilities.

What is Jupyter?

Jupyter is an application that runs on your web browser, and lets you create Jupyter Notebooks. Notebooks are rich, interactive documents that can contain live (runnable) code, equations, animations, visualizations and explanatory text. Notebooks are great for sharing work, prototyping research solutions, and teaching—among other things.

Who can use Jupyter?

Anyone can use Jupyter, for a friendlier interface on the Palmetto Cluster (or elsewhere), or use the interactive environment to do scientific computing and data analysis. It’s also a great way to teach, enabling people to make presentations, demos, lessons and assignments that contain interactive elements.

How difficult is it to learn?

Not difficult at all. Jupyter will be included in one of CITI’s introductory workshops and should cover everything you need to know.

What programming language do I need to use?

Jupyter Notebooks offer support for over 40 programming languages, including those popular in Data Science such as Python, R, Julia and Scala.

How can I learn more?

CITI’s introductory Jupyter notebook is a great place to start, allowing you to play around with some features and the wide range of possibilities. Also check out our JupyterHub for Palmetto Cluster or have a look at the newest documentation.
