When you open or launch a Jupyter Notebook in the Constellate lab, some fun stuff happens in the background.

  • With the first Notebook you open, we create a notebook session just for you.  This usually happens in just a couple of minutes and can take up to 4 minutes if there are lots of other people using Notebooks in their own spaces already.
  • One that first Notebook opens, your unique session information is stored in your browser, so the next Notebook you open while that session is running should open nearly immediately.
  • Your notebook session should remain active until you are idle for 10 minutes – which means you have not clicked run or save in any of your open Notebooks in 10 minutes.

If your experience does not match the timing and descriptions above, please let us know.
