Everything End-user Computing with Python and JupyterHub

Lucas Durand


Providing an end-user computing environment for on-demand Data Science capabilities in a heavily regulated industry comes with inherent challenges. Not only are we trying to appeal to industry professionals from different backgrounds, from software developers to ML & Analytics experts, we also want to appeal to first-time users that might not have the permissions or know-how to set up a local python installation. All of them are important members of the growing python community with different goals and needs. We think the answer to this is to **give everyone python**, no questions asked. Regulatory concerns are handled with a custom implementation of JupyterHub, which we also extend to form the backbone of a complete solution delivery pipeline. **Highlights include:** custom authenticators, integrating with logging/monitoring stacks, police bots, collaboration tools, and a real pipeline to get from ideation to production.
