I am planning to teach Julia to a bunch of grad and undergraduate students, and wanted to make their life easier by recommending (and potentially setting up) Jupyter on servers. They have slightly different needs, but I wanted to get any current thoughts:
- Undergraduates: I want to suggest using something on the web. Is JuliaBox.com still the best option for this? Is it stable enough for students to rely on it to do basic computational homeworks (say nothing taking more than a minute or two to run)? I realize nobody can promise particular uptimes, but if it goes down frequently I would prefer not to suggest it.
Graduates: We have a server setup for the graduate students, and I wanted to get jupyterhub setup
- One consideration is that our linux administrator has limited experience with this sort of stuff (e.g. doesn’t know about docker, etc.)
- Is there a preferred pre-built docker stack (or something equivalent) with easy enough setup instructions that has a pre-built Julia 0.6 kernel, basic JupyterHub installation, etc.? I have found https://github.com/felipenoris/math-server-docker and a few others, but tough to figure out which one would be the best.
