Mostly I use Jupyter Notebook to test some python code that I work on.
  • Easy to use
  • Easy to understand
  • Faster
  • User Interface can be improved
  • More features in online Jupyter lab can be added
  • Good & free documentation
If I want test some code quickly then I just open up Jupyter Notebook because by using it I can run and check if my code runs correctly or not at every step. I can easily check if the conditions specified are working as expected or not within a matter of time.

Jupyter Notebook is the most friendly software for testing and running python codes of all types. Its simple to illustrate and visualise and test a code line by line. Also if not downloaded you can still use it as a google collab notebook. Its easy and simple to use for data models, statistical visualisation and machine learning programs. I have been using it constantly in my research works.
  • Coding and error correction line by line
  • Simple and Effectiveness
  • Easy to use for visualisation and presentation of code
  • Could be used at any place any time without hassle
  • could have some standard python libraries imported already
  • compiled images and results should be alterable in size
  • compiler runtime
Best for presentation of codes and results. However needs some standard libaries such as numpy, pandas, etc to be already imported.

I do all my python projects with it every day and the amount of convenience it provides is unmatchable. It's interface is very easy and self expressive which is why I recommend it the most. It comes with the code sharing feature which i use when I get stuck somewhere or having some bug or needed any advice from the team lead.
  • Great interface.
  • Segments for codes.
  • Markdown for code explanation.
  • Sometimes I have to restart it when I import any new python library.
  • Should be available for more languages.
Many data science tutors use Jupyter Notebook to teach their students. It's an open source software with markdown to explain codes and code segments to make it more clean, error free and self explanatory. It is best IDE for the data science and python programming beginners because of it's interface and code segments where one can run their codes separately.

Jupyter Notebook is a coffee to me, a daily dose of it makes my day. I have been using Jupyter Notebook for various purposes from presenting a Proof of Concept to the client, to deploying it on the cloud, teaching new hires about their role, and explaining things to my team. Development is also super easy on Jupyter Notebook with its interactive environment where one can keep codes, comment, and plot images together on a single platform. It's readable and flexible. You can have host server-side also which is great and allows you to access your Notebook from anywhere around the globe. In my organization, Jupyter Notebook is used a lot for various reasons. It's presentable, powerful (not as powerful as IDE though but it has its own purpose), flexible, and most importantly its open source. [For] several years since the boom of Data Scientist fields Jupyter Notebook [has been] getting more and more popular among those who analyze data. I highly recommend Jupyter Notebook because it will make your life's work easy and fun, whether you are a manager who creates presentations for the clients, an engineer who develops code, or a Data Scientist/Analyst, Jupyter Notebook covers all.
  • Giving presentation to a client or explaining your code to a colleague
  • Developing code snippets for big or small projects
  • Easy to share your work with others
  • Highly recommended data analysis presentation
  • Need more Hotkeys for creating a beautiful notebook. Sometimes we need to download other plugins which messes [with] its default settings.
  • Not as powerful as IDE, which sometimes makes [the] job difficult and allows duplicate code as it get confusing when the number of lines increases. Need a feature where [an] error comes if duplicate code is found or [if a] developer tries the same function name.
Jupyter Notebook is well suited for presentations, creating codes snippets, or analyzing big pieces of code in small chunks. It's highly recommended for [a] data analysis job in which one can plot the interactive and Live figures or graphs. Not recommended for [the] full development of [a] project without an IDE but only creating part of it which can help a lot for developing big projects.

Jupyter Notebook is one of the most important applications for my personal use and for the organization purpose also. It helps to develop open source software and for interactive computing across different programing languages. I'm using this since my college time, it supports Julia, Python and R. It allow us to create and share documents that contains live code and graphs.
  • We can use it as a notebook and share the slide and also publish it online through GitHub.
  • Attractive programming environment.
  • Easy navigation platform.
  • Should work on Configuration setup, it takes a lot of time.
  • Work on code styling correction, sometimes it makes a major difference.
  • There is no IDE integration.
  • Should include more programming language.

Python is the new technology that is being deployed across organisation for data science. For every language, one must use a user friendly IDE that makes the code more streamlined, easy to understand and with added built in functionalities. Jupyter Notebook takes care of all these and adds a lot of value to the data science projects.
  • Code presentation- with Jupyter Notebook you can deploy codes and markdowns which makes the code easy to read and understand.
  • User interface- the user interface of the Jupyter Notebook is very smooth, there are a lot of easy shortcuts as well the icons to make our work easier
  • Server hosting- with Jupyter Notebook server hosting is very easy which adds to the security feature
  • no code style correction- it doesn't have any functionality to auto correct the code style such as spaces.
  • sometimes while executing the script the system gets frozen.
  • no third party app integration
Jupyter Notebook is the best IDE to use if you are feeling started with the data science. You will notice a lot of tutors use Jupyter Notebook to present their code, the markdown make the code more presentable and can be exported to present. But in case you have to do heavy tasking then it's not advisable to use Jupyter Notebook.

Jupyter notebooks are widely used by our Science and Analytics departments to analyze data, make forecasts, clean/wrangle data, graph visualizations, create machine learning models, and perform a suite of analyses to best understand our business landscape.
  • Sharing/showcasing work in a step by step manner
  • Exploratory data analysis/viewing code in-line
  • Data exploration/visualization
  • Switch between different coding languages
  • No IDE integration/linting
  • No testing integrations
  • Difficult to view changes in GitHub
  • Notebook harder to productionize than scripts
Jupyter notebooks are great for data science, especially if you want to clean and transform data, and explore outcomes/visualize/model in real-time. Once you have a successful logic built out, though, it's best to move the code away from a notebook for production.

I use Jupiter Notebook to organize my workflows into manageable and readable chunks. The ability to streamline my work using markdown descriptions and title is extremely helpful for visually cueing transitions and reorienting the user to the pattern of the workflow outlined in the notebook. It also makes it easier to replicate the workflow for other projects.
  • Visually intuitive organization of code.
  • Static (but changeable) display of function outputs.
  • Easy replication of notebooks or into new notebooks, or into PDFs.
  • I'd like to see bookmarks made available for easier scrolling through long notebooks.
  • A dark mode option would be helpful, too.
  • I wish that the display of graphics would be a little bit more customizable as a native function of Jupyter.
I've created a number of daisy chain notebooks for different workflows, and every time, I create my workflows with other users in mind. Jupiter Notebook makes it very easy for me to outline my thought process in as granular a way as I want without using innumerable small. inline comments.

Almost every large-scale enterprise today has started to have in-house ML models & my organization is no different. We have been making use of this wonderful tool for Data visualization purposes, consuming python libraries to get some insights from the larger datasets from different data sources. Also, we use it to train our ML models to make predictions & then use that to further fine-tune the models efficiently.
  • User-friendly UI.
  • Easy to debug at each code line.
  • Great support for Python Math libraries.
  • Advanced data visualization capabilities.
  • Notebook sharing feature.
  • Intellisense not up to the mark.
  • Limited collaboration scope.
  • No IDE integration supported.
  • Can become sluggish at times when datasets are huge.
Jupyter Notebook is well suited for someone who's trying to learn python programming with the aim of training the ML models & get some really insightful analysis out of it. It really is a very user-friendly tool for any beginner as they can check the output on any of the written code without having to wait for the whole code to be finished.

Jupyter Notebook is a really dynamic tool, currently used by the Engineering team at my company. The main focus of using it is to incorporate python programming while writing code to forecast sales. Jupyter gave me the flexibility of writing code in a line-by-line manner and help me see the output at each step.
  • Simple and elegant code writing ability. Easier to understand the code that way.
  • The ability to see the output after each step.
  • The ability to use ton of library functions in Python.
  • Easy-user friendly interface.
  • The ability to use night mode background.
  • The ability to select multiple lines of code to run and see the output.
  • The ability to open .py extension file as well along with .ipynb
I would rate it 9/10 while recommending Jupyter Notebook as it offers me a wide range of functionality to operate. It is very well suited for someone who is new to python programming as the user interface helps you build code line by line. I personally have written multiple programs in Python using Jupyter Notebook as it helps me organize long code by breaking it in a structure. Also the ability to write comments using '#' helps a lot to a reader understand the code.

It is used mostly by our Python and R programmers for programming. It is very interactive and easy to manage the programs and present them. Coding in it is very easy and we can also easily debug. We can do many things--change the cell types, use shortcuts, and if stuck somewhere restart the kernel.
  • Interactive
  • Efficient
  • Quick
  • More languages support
  • Enhanced GPU support
  • Multi-environment support
If you want to develop a project in Python or R then Jupyter Notebook is the perfect idle that you should use. It is easy to maintain modularity and write clean and efficient code. We can also use it for connecting to various databases like MongoDB from our Python script.

As an organization, we are using Python for solving manual task creation by automatically doing this task. So for this we use the RPA technology, but for that we have to scrape the data from the PDF. So we use the Python library from which we read the data which in the form of image then create the CSV table by using the library.
  • Easy to use and handle as it takes less hardware requirements.
  • Helps [in] creating the data visualization.
  • Provide support for difficult language.
  • Needs more code styling.
  • The markdown is limited.
  • For the new user, there [should be] some intro videos or tutorial for that.
I recommend Jupyter Notebook to all [that] are just starting their programming journey and don't want to waste their computer resources. This tool also helps in data visualization, so if you are enthusiastic for the data things then Jupyter Notebook is also a great tool for [you]. Overall, it is a great tool to start the journey.

We are an E-learning company. We use Jupyter Notebook in our lab's virtual environment.
  • Its one by one cell execution.
  • It is user friendly and easy to work on.
  • Only installing Anaconda can bring us to use this Jupyter Notebook easily.
  • Freely available.
  • Sometimes we face issues in executing the code because Jupyter Notebook hangs.
  • Auto save option is not there which sometimes creates issues in saving your work.
It is well suited everywhere. In web development one cannot use Jupyter Notebook.

Jupyter Notebook is used widely within our data science groups as a way to experiment with ML and other models. It's great for early stage data analysis as well as for training and sharing of new Python models within the group in a clear way. The interface is easy to use and onboard onto and has been a great way for members to easily share and onboard new associates onto their existing Python analysis scripts.
  • Markdown for comments/explanations.
  • Interactive programming.
  • Easy to use and share notebooks.
  • Doesn't have some features that competitors have.
  • Difficult to do direct collaboration on the same notebook.
  • Doesn't provide great code style support/corrections.
Well suited to exploratory or initial phase data analysis where you want to quickly and interactively explore different models and be able to communicate it easily to either other team members or even external partners without much hassle. Less appropriate for large scale deployments or production level software engineering.

We are using Jupyter Notebook for data visualization of JSON and excel data for a banking customer. We are running multiple python scripts on Jupyter Notebook for in-depth data analysis to develop machine learning models.
  • Easy to learn and use
  • Data [modeling]
  • Data analysis and reporting
  • Predefined visualizations models
  • Not much troubleshooting support available
  • No support for IDE
  • Deployment is complex for cloud environments
Jupyter Notebook is best suited for scenarios where you have small to medium size JSON/ Excel data. It is not well suited for large amounts of data.

Jupyter Notebook is used for interactive and literate programming for Python and R. It is deployed server side, and it is used across the organization to allow users to code through their web browser. It gives users access to Python and R programming, without needing the users to maintain it.
  • Literate programming
  • Interactive programming
  • Server side deployment supporting many users to code via web browser.
  • Lacks some features like autoindent code.
  • Too many different instructions for deployment.
  • Could have better environment isolation.
Jupyter Notebook is great for interactive and literate coding. This is great for data analysis type of tasks. For more programmatic coding, you still need an IDE.
Jupyter allows multi-users to access the same environments. Additional environments can be installed via Conda, but this can be complicated.
Jupyter can be deployed via Kubernetes for example to allow virtualized environments for each user.

Jupyter Notebook was first used by me for a project for my Big Data Class to handle data in csv, excel, json, etc. I used python and a lot of flexible libraries in it to do data analysis on our banking information like documents, statements, reports etc. and draw visualizations on it.
  • Data Analytics
  • easy visualization

We currently use Juptyer Notebooks across our organization. Jupyter Notebooks are our go-to experimenting environments for data pre-processing, creation, training and evaluation of machine learning and deep learning models. We also heavily use Jupyter for data visualization and exploratory data analysis. It also provides a great interactive interface which can be used for story telling to our clients and consumers.
  • Easy and interactive Python environment.
  • Latex markdown for explanations.
  • Terminal access through cell itself.
  • Fast Intellisense.
  • Documentation access through cell commands.
  • Intuitive Key Bindings.
  • Creating and installing a virtual environment can be tricky.
  • Conda environment can be granular to work with.
If you want to do exploratory data analysis, ML and DL model training, and evaluation with data pre-processing then Jupyter Notebook is the best. It has a good community support as well. If you want to develop Python API or scripting or backend development, other open source code editors are a better fit.

I use Jupyter Notebook to run statistical analysis and develop machine learning models and deploy in production. Jupyter Notebook is widely adopted by data scientists in our organization. It's well integrated with our remote cloud desktop as well as production system. We use Jupyter Notebook to understand customer behaviors and how to improve customer experience.
  • Big data analysis on cloud desktop.
  • Exploratory analysis.
  • Common machine learning models.
  • Nicer output format for explanatory analysis.
  • Easy update on packages.
  • Better compatibility with AWS tools.
I think Jupyter Notebook is well suited for scenarios below:
1) analyze big data above millions of records
2) develop machine learning codes that can be deployed in production system

I started using Jupyter to solve my everyday problems and to do things faster. I'm aware that there a few users already across the organization. I have been recommended to use it and I have also recommended this fantastic tool. With Jupyter, it's really easy to break the problem into small pieces and develop larger, more productive code. It's also easy to enhance without breaking the remaining part of code. I develop working code as and when time permits, integrate with different tools (through API, DB calls, etc), and even plot beautiful graphs all in one notebook. The best thing is that the results are saved when I reopen the notebook.
  • Saves the results until next time the notebook is reopened
  • Provides so many libraries
  • Allows to code on multiple platforms
  • Automatically creates checkpoints
  • Really lightweight
  • Would like to see syntax errors highlighted while coding
  • PDF integration should get better to print notebook results
Juypter suits developers the most, who want to write small pieces of code and create larger modules. Jupyter is also suited when creating smaller integration scenarios. Jupyter enables creating neat graphical charts for analysts very quickly. It is particularly easy to create and share notebooks to who so ever. For Enterprise-grade scenarios and large scale implementations, Jupyter may not be the best fit.
I haven't had a need to contact support. However, all required help is out there in public forums.
