Jupyter notebookCoding tool for working with R and PythonDojo , Guru, Sensei , CITREPJupyter notebook is a coding tool which allows you to write your code, run your code, and save the output in the same document. You can use Jupyter notebooks to code in R as well as Python. Jupyter notebook allows you to divide your code in different sections known as code-chunks. Each code chunk can be run one at a time and the corresponding code output gets saved just below that code-chunk. The output can be in any format: any data visualizations, any model summary, and any other calculations etc. It also allows you to record your interpretations  and comments in the same document.  You can save, print, and download a Jupyter notebook and share with others.Digital, Bootcamp, Learning Resources, Code Samples
