Logistics of the Class

Faculty, librarians, staff, and students at institutions participating in the beta evaluation of Constellate may attend our Build Your Own Class and Jupyter Book workshop, taught by Nathan Kelber.  It is a 3-session, 1-week workshop.  We will run identical sessions (morning and afternoon) on Tuesday, July 13, Thursday, July 15, and Friday, July 16.

We recommend that you have either attended one of our Introduction to Text Analytics classes (the next one will begin the week of July 19) or otherwise be comfortable with Python and Jupyter Notebooks.  You do not need to be comfortable with Git or have an integrated development environment (IDE).

Please register for the workshop to receive the class log-in information and password for accessing the recordings.

The sessions will start at 10 am and 3:30 pm Eastern.  You are welcome to attend either session on each day, as best fits your schedule.

  • Tuesday, July 13: Installation Party
  • Thursday, July 15: Working with GitHub Desktop and Constellate
  • Friday, July 16: Working with Jupyter Book


Recordings will be posted below the day after each class.

In Tuesday's session, we install software!

Thursday's session is about getting GitHub Desktop installed and learning how to upload a Notebook and run it in the Constellate Analytics Lab:

Friday's session will have us working in our own Jupyter Book:
