Data Visualization with the Beaker Notebook

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The Beaker Notebook is a new open source tool for collaborative data science and visualization. Beaker has an innovative UI and unique architecture to make it easier for novices to get started, and enable experts to work faster. Like IPython, Beaker uses a notebook-based UI metaphor, but Beaker was designed to be polyglot from the ground up. That is, a single notebook may contain cells from multiple different languages that communicate with one another through a unique feature called autotranslation. You can set a variable in a Python cell and then read that variable in a subsequent R cell, and everything just works – magically. Beaker comes with built-in support for Python, R, JavaScript, Java, Scala, Clojure, Julia, and more. Each part of your problem can be solved in the language bested suited to it. For example, you can scrape the web in Python, do a regression in R, and then visualize it with d3.js, seamlessly and all in the same notebook. This talk will focus on variety of visualization techniques, and include a live demo of Beaker in action.
