DataLearn - DataKind Chapter Tools and Practices - DataKind SG

Published on: Friday, 6 April 2018

Speaker: Paul Lorett Amazona

In this session, we will be discussing our dockerized data tools for volunteers and a new workflow which we'll be using for the upcoming DataDive. We'll quickly revisit usage of existing docker images we already use: RStudio and Jupyter Notebooks (both Python and R). However, since we're also be supporting Jupyter Lab images moving forwards, we'll share more on that in this session.

Using docker will allow us to promote reproducibility of analysis among project team members and our partner organisations, regardless of our computing environments (Windows, Linux or MacOS).

If you're new to docker please watch the following videos:
