Reading Time: 5 minutes Preamble I’d always intended that this blog be a combination of my work life and my personal life with some aspects looking at learning technology and the rest about baking. Finally, FINALLY! I can actually make that a reality and post my first recipe. As part of the celebrations of Wikipedia’s 20th Birthday I decided […]

Reading Time: 6 minutes Processes and Plugins   I admit, I may be cheating a little here. As part of HeyPresstoConf20 I really wanted to be able to talk about our Plugins and Processes but couldn’t fit into the Tweet limit so I’m putting it all here. This should be helpful if you are planning on building your own […]

Reading Time: 6 minutes How to Inherit a Service A while back, before quarantine and therefore a lifetime ago, I ‘inherited’ a service. Anyone familiar with how these things go will also be somewhat familiar with how the conversation went: “We think you’ve done quiet well and we’d like you to take over this service” “Does that mean I […]

Reading Time: 5 minutes Running a service like Noteable comes with its own particular set of problems. Academic colleagues who have used the service in their teaching always say that the service is great, which itself is very good, the problem comes when trying to solidify this into something that you can take to others. I’ve realised that it […]

Reading Time: 3 minutes The Noteable service is into its next big pilot phase this Semester. Over 500 students will be using the service this week across 6 different courses in 6 different School within the University of Edinburgh. But what is the Noteable service and what is the scope of this pilot? I’m glad you asked (You did […]

Reading Time: 3 minutes The first ProgTeach Symposium took place on the 24th of August, this has been something that colleagues and I have been working towards for some time so it was great to finally see this come together. The premise is fairly simple, across the University of Edinburgh lots of people teach computation in some form so […]

Reading Time: < 1 minute A large part of my current project involves looking at other companies or services that offer Jupyter notebooks. The University has decided that it wants to provide notebooks but we also have to justify creating our own service.
