This playground is strictly to demo, lab, and understand. This is not intended to be used in production. If you intend to use this, please secure the environment. Use this to load up Jupyter notebooks to learn, test, and grab various code snippets to use in your own scripts or notebooks. Please contribute any of your notebooks you think would help others.

Take me to the Description
Free Playground This is the easy button to start hammering out the workbooks without having to mess with docker or making your own local jupyter notebook locally. (Hosted by
Notebook Library My library of notebooks I have made. Please contribute any cool notebooks you have made and share to others!
Jupyter Notebook Tutorial Workbooks The best way to learn is to get your hands dirty. Load up the notebooks yourself or code with me by following the playlist corresponding to the workbook.

Getting Started

To get started with the playground, click on the launch binder link or goto It should load an environment on which is a free cloud hosted notebook that will clone this repository.

To run your own Jupyter Notebook locally using docker.

docker run -p 8888:8888 teachjing/jupyter-playground:latest

add --user=root if you want sudo access to install whatever other stuff you want.

or you can clone the github repo and navigate to the docker folder.

- docker build --tag powershellplayground .
- docker run -p 8888:8888 powershellplayground

Access it on http://localhost:8888 (There is not much security and the intent was to make it easy to play in this sandbox). Please make the necessary security improvements.


Please reach out to Jing on LinkedIn if you want to contribute.
