An example-focused discussion of the pitfalls and strengths of interactive Python notebooks. Topics up for discussion: Namespace pollution - what is it and why do I care? Speed - when might my notebook be holding me back? Pretty pictures - are there times when even for visuals I might skip the notebook? Transitions - I’m so comfortable using my notebook. How do I change in useful ways without grinding to a halt? Functional combinations - can there be a happy middle ground between notebooks and scripts?
