Jupyter Notebooks are a powerful way to write and iterate on your Python code for data analysis. Jupyter Notebook is built off of IPython and the Kernel runs the computations and communicates with the Jupyter Notebook front-end interface. This Jupyter Notebook Cheat Sheet will help you find your way around the well-known Notebook App, a subproject of Project Jupyter. Learn more about Hadoop Ecosystem tools and its concepts from the Online big data courses.

To get in-depth knowledge, check out our interactive, live-online Edureka Python Data Science Certification Training here, that comes with 24*7 support to guide you throughout your learning period.

Jupyter Notebook Cheat Sheet

Jupyter Notebook is an open-source web application that allows you to create and share documents that contain live code, equations, visualizations and narrative text. It is used for data cleaning and transformation, numerical simulation, statistical modeling, data visualization, machine learning, and much more.

This Jupyter Notebook Cheat Sheet is a guide to the Toolbar and the keyboard shortcuts used in Jupyter Notebook.
