Why do we make notebooks in the data/ directory? #449
We just ran this workshop. It seemed clear to create a notebook in the python-novice-inflammation/ folder, but all the examples are listed with
At the very least, could we make the file paths absolute (and maybe fewer folders / a folder with a shorter name) ? This is a very common issue (happens every time I teach it), and causes a lot of helper/learner headache and pain early in the lesson.
That's true. Even when checking the setup instructions during the class (showing they should have 3 files "inflammation-01.csv, inflammation-02.csv, inflammation-03.csv"), we still have attendees getting "no file or directory found". It's a good opportunity to refresh their memory (they usually had a bash shell lesson before or the day before) and also show them how to "navigate" when starting Jupyter notebook. !pwd would not work for Windows users (!dir should work).
