Abstract

Jupyter Notebooks is a web-based tool for editing and running programs in various languages, and for displaying and distributing the results.

Most Jupyter "advertising" to SAS users has focused on how it works with R and Python. But what if you don't know/care about those languages? Can Jupyter Notebooks still be useful?

This presentation starts with an all-SAS demonstration of Jupyter Notebooks, and shows how they can be useful to old-school programmers. A few of the ways: Iterative development, Integrated output, and Stylish documentation.
