- Make new analysis methodologies available as widely and rapidly as possible with as few conditions on their use as possible.
- Educate our commercial, scientific and medical partners in the use of these latest methodologies.
- Act to achieve a balance between data sharing for societal benefit and the right of an individual to own their data.

2 Research Software Engineering Fellows in Sheffield

First Fellowship of its kind

## Hiring soon for the OpenDreamKit post!

Jupyter notebook and High Performance Computing

## Jupyter notebook and SageMathCloud

### A new way to teach computation

## Jupyter: What is it?

- Open
- Text, maths, results and code combined
- Interactive research papers
- Interactive lecture notes
- Conversion to .pdf, .html, etc is trivial
- Pervasive computation

## Jupyter: In use at Sheffield

## Some benefits of Jupyter notebook

- Frictionless code execution
- Free
- Works on Raspberry Pi to supercomputers.
- All Operating systems.
- Students can work anywhere, on any device, locally or in cloud

## Collaboration between lecturer and RSE

- Marta Milo (lecturer)
- Mike Croucher (Research Software Engineer)

## Bioinformatics for Biomedical Science

Undergraduate course
We'll use R in the notebook (R kernel very new at the time)
Teach students who've never coded before
Zero to Bioinformatics hero in 6 weeks!
## Managed desktop hell

## The solution

## SageMathCloud benefits

- Jupyter with R, Python, Julia and Sage
- Linux terminal access
- Easy course administration
- Students only need a browser
- Open Source
- Superb support
- Automatic back-ups
- Inexpensive
- Students keep their work after the course

## Collaborative editing of notebooks

Like Google-docs for the notebook!

## We ran the entire course in SageMathCloud

No need for Blackboard
No need for managed desktop
## The Future?

- Fully interactive, computable lecture notes for the entire syllabus?
- e.g. Fourier series

## Next steps

- SageMathCloud seminar for lecturers
- Jupyter on Iceberg (Sheffield HPC)
