Playing with code - a Jupyter workshop

At NDF2018, Tim Sherratt showed us some of the possibilities of Jupyter and Binder in his talk "A GLAM data workbenches for reluctant researchers" (https://youtu.be/ONnxd-1KJFI).

As Tim nimbly demonstrated with live code examples during his talk, "Jupyter lets you play around and gain confidence with code - not by undertaking a series of boring exercises, but by just doing something that you're interested in and that has an immediate pay off for you. And as your confidence grows you can start asking different questions."

Tim's talk generated a lot of buzz from the audience, and this year we'd like to give the NDF community the chance to dive deeper into tools like Python, Jupyter, and Binder, and to get hands on experience manipulating, interrogating and visualising data from datasets and APIs.

The detailed workshop outline will be finalised shortly, but Tim's "GLAM workbench" contains content we can use as a starting point, and there are other use cases being shared in the GLAM community (e.g. see this Twitter thread: https://twitter.com/wragge/status/985693489378701312?s=19).
