JupyterCon 2023

And Voilà!
05-11, 11:30–12:00 (Europe/Paris), Gaston Berger

Voilà can turn Jupyter notebooks into interactive dashboards without any modifications. This means that the millions of notebooks shared on GitHub and other online venues are just as many potential interactive dashboards. Unlike classical HTML-converted Notebooks, each user connected to a Voilà dashboard gets a live Jupyter kernel that can execute callbacks, making the dashboard interactive using e.g. Jupyter widgets.

In this talk we will present the latest updates on the Voilà open-source project, including the recent move to using components from the JupyterLab project for the rendering, enabling support for rich mime type renderers. We will also demo the ongoing work on using in-browser Python kernels from JupyterLite.

Martin Renou is a Technical Director at QuantStack. Prior to joining QuantStack, Martin also worked as a Software Developer at Enthought. He studied at the French Aerospace Engineering School ISAE-Supaero, with a major in autonomous systems and programming.

As an open-source developer, Martin has worked on a variety of projects, such as ipygany (a 3-D mesh visualization library for the Jupyter Notebook) and ipympl (an interactive Matplotlib backend for Jupyter)

Passionate about 3-D rendering and computer graphics, Martin has also developed a 3-D Chess GUI based on OpenGL, and an interactive canvas library during his spare time.

Martin is the main author of xeus-python, he worked on xtensor and xsimd, and is now working on Jupyter interactive widgets.

Furthermore, Martin is a Jupyter Distinguished Contributor.

Le Duc Trung is a Scientific Software Developer at QuantStack. He holds a Ph.D. in computational mechanics from Université Pierre-et-Marie-Curie (France). Before joining QuantStack, Trung worked as a research engineer at Mines ParisTech, CADLM (now Hexagon), and Safran Group.

At QuantStack, he works on several projects within the Jupyter ecosystem, from main projects like JupyterLab, Voilà, and ipywidgets to Jupyter extensions and widgets.

Trung is the author of ipyflex (a WYSIWYG layout editor for Jupyter widgets) and jupyterview (a VTK data visualization extension for JupyterLab)

As a personal project, Trung co-founded cast2cloud.com, a web-based mechanical simulation application based on the Cast3M finite element solver.
