@remram44 this works from CL to sign (or to clear untrusted warnings): $ ipython trust foo.ipynb
How do you TEST notebooks in non-interactive batch? nosebook?

sorry i missed today... the new Man sprung a conflict on my on the first day
I'll see what i can do to get it resolved in the future
@rsvp nosebook author here. it's one, particular way to test, especially centered around docs that contain code examples
it might not meet your need directly, but certainly bounce some ideas off us!

Hi everyone. Are there known cases of jupyterhub being used on the scale of a complete department?
When any student may get an account or even gets one right away.

@akhmerov akhmerov the largest known deployment is @jhamrick's class of ~220 students.
How big is the department, and on what sort of compute resources do you want to deploy it?
Anton Akhmerov

We have ~200 students a year, so perhaps around 700 in total. I'd like to somehow tie Jupyter into the education globally over the course of coming years. I have no solid plans yet as far as the implementation goes.
@minrk BTW you're relatively close now, you'd be welcome to visit, give a talk.
Min RK

Sure! Where are you?
That should be doable, depending on what compute resources you have, and what concurrent active numbers you expect.

Delft, NL. The problem is mostly not resources, but setting up the infrastructure. Well, and getting the rest of the faculty to agree :)

SageMathCloud may offer more, depending on what you are after.

@akhmerov we use it college wide at Cal Poly :)
But the number of active users at any one time is pretty small
Anton Akhmerov
@akhmerov
Sep 01 2015 20:33
@ellisonbg great to hear. I imagined the number of active users would be small; that's fine. How does it work out? Do you integrate it into many courses?
@minrk good point about SMC, I should ask William Stein about the options for getting support.

@bollwyvl nice to see you here... Currently we just run all the notebooks non-interactively in batch mode using runipy -- and watch for errors -- crude integration testing, haha :smile: / Any other suggestions?
Brian E. Granger

It works quite well. I am running this on a single 16 core server. Right now we dopn't run many classes on it, but that is going to change very soon - our deployment is going to get more complicated by Jan 1st
Anton Akhmerov
@akhmerov
Sep 01 2015 20:53
How are you going to do it, and how do you integrate it into classes?
Brian E. Granger
@ellisonbg
Sep 01 2015 20:57
We use nbgrader for all course work. These are computational physics and data science courses
We use it both for lecture materials, in class work and assignments
We are probably going to start to run it in the cloud using docker swarm - similar to how @jhamrick has done at Berkeley7
Anton Akhmerov
@akhmerov
Sep 01 2015 21:00
Are the course materials available to check how exactly the integration works?

Is there some equivalent of c.IPKernelApp.exec_lines for the notebook 4.0? Putting it in jupyter_notebook_config.py doesn't seem to do anything, nor does jupyter_kernel_config.py
