Google Colaboratory


What is it

Google Colaboratory is a web application that allows you to create and share documents containing a mix of rich text, live python code and visualizations. It is built on top of Jupyter notebooks. It comes with plenty of the standard Python libraries already installed (such as matplotlib and Seaborn) and allows for manual user installation of those who are not.

When to use it

A notebook is a good environment if you want to explore and analyse data on your own. It is also suitable for creating reports to share with others, based on ad-hoc analysis made on static data sets.
