  1. The tutorials are not clear for a novice

    It seems that your tutorials mostly miss the mark (at least for me). I was really interested in SeaHorse, I was able to run the first regression tutorial, saw the gears spin, but don't see any results. All I can do is download the workflow. There are various modules in the workflow, but no description of what they do or why they are there. There are lots of other modules in the toolbox, but no real indication of how to use them. Under regression, there are lots of variations, again with no description. Going to the Documentation link it threw…

    • Adding 7z compression/decompression tools

      Data needed to be uploaded/download may be huge. 7z format is widely used and one of the best existing formats fo far.
      Adding support for this compression format would be great

      • Cheat Sheet Tool

        Hello. I guess that would be nice to have a Cheat Sheet Tool embedded in the Data Scientist Workbench. One example of an online tool that I use is https://www.cheatography.com. There are many Cheat Sheet available, but it's always good to be able to create your own Cheat Sheet with things you believe is relevant for your study/research.

            • Better UX

              The header#global-navigation could be hidden when scrolled down.
              The notebook column could be also larger and its header could also be hidden.

              The UX is really terrible in the current situation. Less than 40% of the screen is used to really display the notebook content. Please, think about changing!

                  Currently there are two ways to upload notebooks in BDU Labs:

                  1. Open My Data in the sidebar. Use the “Upload Data” feature. There is a known limitation of only being able to upload within /resources/data, but Jupyter will still recognize any ipynb you upload as a notebook.

                  2. Alternately, open Jupyter. After it opens, drag and drop your notebook from a file window (e.g Windows Explorer or Mac Finder) into your browser. It will upload the notebook and flash messages at the top of the screen while doing so.

                  I appreciate that these options can be a little obscure. We’re always reviewing ways to make the user experience in BDU Labs simpler and more intuitive.

                    • Support for .gz files

                      Is it possible to allow for uploading .gz files? I have some relatively large files that I would think would want to be uploaded in a .gz or zipped format, and then have a script that can unzip and work with them from there. Thanks.

                        • I would like to see the ability to display Spatial Data on a map. Points/Polygons/Locations/Distances/Clustering etc.

                          There needs to be a service that can display large data sets on a map. This service would be similar in nature to the application QGIS. The elements that should be able to be displayed would be point locations/polygons/line of points etc. Colors should be able to be assigned to different types of data based on criteria specified. An example is attached.

                                  I don't find a clear access to the resources I'm using (no. cluster nodes, workers, amount of free storage, etc.)

                                  ... and it would be great if I could have the possibility for requesting more resources (for example making more clear how could it be scaled up to Bluemix)

                                  • The black bar on the top takes a lot of screen estate.

                                    Have the thick black bar at the top hidable so that screen estate can be conserved.

                                      Please see the possibility of adding Beaker notebook. It will be amazing to use different languages in the same notebook without loosing focus on the analysis at hand.

                                        I have been seeing a number of incorrect spellings and other typos throughout the tutorials.

                                        • Reseting my account

                                          It could be fine to be able to reset my account (to start from scratch when something goes wrong).
