#TSQL2sday #137 Invite Using Notebooks Every Day


tsqltuesdayIt’s time for the T-SQL Tuesday blog party, and I’m hosting this month. I don’t host too often, but since I had some schedule mix ups, I’ll handle this month. Read the invitation below and then write your post for next Tuesday, Apr 13.

If you want to host a T-SQL Tuesday, let me know. You can ping me on Twitter.

Jupyter Notebooks

I first heard about Jupyter Notebooks years ago. At the time I was just getting started in Python and I thought these were a great way to share code online with others. However, the setup and administration was a pain, and I quickly gave up.

When I saw Microsoft add notebooks to Azure, I got slightly excited again, but once again, it was a bit of a pain to work with these. Too much administrative overhead, in my opinion.

That changed a bit with Azure Data Studio, which has seen notebooks get added, and become easier and more stable. If you haven’t tried notebooks, get ADS and give it a try today. I even wrote a short piece on using these.

Your Invitation

For this month’s T-SQL Tuesday, I want you to write about how you have used, or would like to use, a Jupyter notebook. This seemed to be exciting for many people at first, but I haven’t seen a lot of uptake from users in general. So I’m curious if you are using them.

A few resources for you:

There is even a way to run these from PowerShell.

So let me know how you are using notebooks, or your plans for the future.

Publish your post sometimes on 13 Apr, UTC time.
