View iPython notebooks through GitHub

I had no idea this was possible til just now but found out while looking into the craze surrounding Google’s Deep Dream research. iPython notebooks can be viewed directly through GitHub.

Here’s how I found out: https://github.com/google/deepdream/blob/master/dream.ipynb

Meanwhile, I’ve now found the release announcement too: http://blog.jupyter.org/2015/05/07/rendering-notebooks-on-github/

Weird, I remember reading that post and knowing about this previously through hackernews, but I don’t think it clicked in my head that the notebooks are actually getting rendered/executed live.

It’s pretty amazing in my opinion. I’ll be digging more into it now just because it’s so fascinating to me (I’ve “tried” iPython notebook in the past but didn’t personally have need of it, it was just for fun).

I also think it’s great that Google’s work on Deep Dreams is accessible in that way there. Impressive stuff all around.
