My favourite tool is … the Jupyter Notebook.

One of my favourite tools is the Jupyter notebook. I use it for teaching my students scientific computing with Python.

Why I like it:

Using Jupyter with the plugin RISE, I can create presentations including code cells that I can edit and execute live during the presentation to demonstrate the various aspects of Python that I introduce. It is a very good compromise between running scripts and typing in the command prompt on the projector screen vs. just showing static slides with code.
