Google Colaboratory

If you need to use and interact with a jupyter notebook on a computer that does not have it installed, Google Colaboratory seems like a great in-browser solution. I learned about it from a student earlier this semester from a student.

The best part is that you don't need to install any software locally on the machine. The standard scientific/data science python stack (numpy, scipy, sympy, pandas) is available, and you can even "install" some additional on the fly using pip install.

It works more or less like Google Docs, in that you documents are saved on Google Drive, and you can collaborate with others in much the same way.

Check it out!
