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.14 votesunder review · AdminLeon Katsnelson (Director & CTO, IBM Analytics Emerging Technology, Cognitive Class Labs) responded
Thank you for your suggestion. We are hearing more and more good things about Julia. Sicne there is interest in the community we need to see how we can add it. Just have to see where it fits in the priority and resources.
This is Feature 908 in our backlog.
Upload notebooks from a local drive.15 votes
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.

Considering this is being marketed as an integrated workbench for data scientists, why don't you provide a publishing feature like 'Rpubs.com' for this workbench, where you can post your analysis publications which can be accessed by other collaborators? This need not be just limited to R - but similar markdowns as well..8 votesunder review · AdminLeon Katsnelson (Director & CTO, IBM Analytics Emerging Technology, Cognitive Class Labs) responded
Thank you very much for an excellent suggestion

I found it odd to have tutorials under My Notebooks -- since I never created one so I never went there, but I see it now. But something to consider - why not put a link on the main page0 votes
