  • Getting started with Jupyter

    - [Instructor] Jupyter came with your Anaconda install, so let me show you how to run Jupyter. You just go to the application and launch it and then your console will open up. Right now, these are a bunch of files that I've been working with for the course, but let's look at some notebooks that come with the course. You're going to get all of these notebooks in the Exercises Files. Let's look at the first one. And I just wanted to point out that these are the cells where you code, and when you're coding you just want to make sure that they're set at code so that Jupyter knows to treat them that way. When you want to run the coding cell, you can either point and click this button here, or you could hit shift enter or control enter. That's the very basics about Jupyter and Notebook that you need for this course.
