Course Description

Jupyter Notebooks are a widely used tool in the industry when it comes to experimenting on ML solutions. This lab aims to mine, analyze, and interpret how developers are working with Jupyter Notebooks to uncover hidden patterns, trends, and knowledge to improve the development process. The participants are provided with an initial set of tools (automatic activity-based cell labeler, history tracking tool) and are challenged to develop approaches that provide insights into development activities within Jupyter Notebooks. These approaches are then implemented and integrated as Jupyter Notebook extensions.

During the lab, students should learn and practice various skills in the field of software engineering. Organisational and interpersonal skills are to be trained on the one hand by independently carrying out a software project in a team over several months.Teams will be formed interdisciplinary, frontend or backend knowledge is beneficial. This lab will involve building Jupyter Lab extensions, which are JavaScript or TypeScript based (see official documentation:
