Azure Notebooks – a nice little tool.

Gday,

I’ve been playing with Azure notebooks lately and have found them invaluable as

  • A teaching aid
  • A test sandbox

I’ve been using Python code, and this means that I don’t have to install Python on the machine that I am working at.

It also means that anybody I am demonstrating my code to has only to open a web page that shows my Azure Notebook.

So – how do you get to Azure Notebooks I hear you ask.

Head along to https://notebooks.azure.com and log in with your Microsoft account.

Once there you’ll be able to start a new project

Give in a name, a URL and decide if you want to make this public or not

Create a Project and Share (if you want)

Start the Azure Project up

Start the Project up

Add a Notebook to the project

Add a Notebook

Choose the language, R and Python are available – but also F#

Choose the language for the Azure Notebook.

And then have fun!

I’d really love to see more languages added in the future. These notebooks have potential – on many levels – and they are also FREE!

Have a great day!

Cheers

Marty.
