  1. Reseting my account

    It could be fine to be able to reset my account (to start from scratch when something goes wrong).

    Currently there are two ways to upload notebooks in BDU Labs:

    1. Open My Data in the sidebar. Use the “Upload Data” feature. There is a known limitation of only being able to upload within /resources/data, but Jupyter will still recognize any ipynb you upload as a notebook.

    2. Alternately, open Jupyter. After it opens, drag and drop your notebook from a file window (e.g Windows Explorer or Mac Finder) into your browser. It will upload the notebook and flash messages at the top of the screen while doing so.

    I appreciate that these options can be a little obscure. We’re always reviewing ways to make the user experience in BDU Labs simpler and more intuitive.

  5. Jupyter and Zeppelin Notebooks are impossibly slow

    I cannot think of anything slower. The "2 - 3 minutes" message is very optimistic. These tools are totally unusable.

  8. Enable public sharing of Jupyter Notebooks

    I'm studying data science and would like to share my interactive notebooks with my classmates and professor.
    I've tried clicking on Share->Github:Gist and could log in, but then nothing happens, nothing gets generated in my Gist area.

    In the ad video on your homepage I saw an option to share with a link - would you be adding this hosting option in the future? This would be great!

  9. Julia

    I've been working with Julia (and Jupyter) for over a year. It's pretty robust and Julia is kinda addictive: certain things can be written quite elegantly, and it's hard to rephrase in other languages. Spark integration with Julia is still early stage...

    I would like to see support for Julia in the Data Scientist Workbench. This may support development on Julia/Spark as well.

  11. Preinstall seaborn for Python

    seaborn is the most popular charting tools for Python to produce decent charts. The majority of serious charts are produced from or touched-up by it, so it make sense to preinstall it.

  12. How do I use or import the data that I uploaded to the /my-data page?

    I just uploaded some data to /my-data/. How can I use it in Jupyter, Zeppelin, OpenRefine, or RStudio IDE now?

  14. Unable to find "FIND DATA"

    Reintroduce the Open data and IBM analytics exchange options in the menu. That will help us to a large extent.

  15. Switch between Jupyter and Zeppelin without losing context

    It's often useful to refer to a Jupyter notebook while working on a Zeppelin one and vice versa. It would be great if I could do it without losing my place in what I'm working on

  19. Auto completion

    Autocompletion for functions, classes, methods, etc. I should be able to start typing "math." and have a list of the members pop up. As I type more, the list should be limited to those members matching what I've typed so far. As I scroll down the list of members, a popup should show me the signature and description.

    Basically, Intellisense!
