Development Environments

Interactive environments for scientific development in the EGI Cloud


Achieving the core objective of the EGI Federation to advance research and innovation, embracing Open Science, is possible by empowering scientists and researchers to easily perform domain-specific research tasks, without having to deal with the complexities of the underlying infrastructure.

An essential tool that contributes to this objective is a flexible development environment, where users can create and share documents containing live code, equations, narrative text, and rich media output.

The following development environments are available:

  • Notebooks is a browser-based, scalable tool for interactive data analysis
  • Binder allows re-creation of custom computing environments for reproducible execution of notebooks

The following sections offer a more detailed description of each development environment.
