Create a product#
With Jupyter Notebooks you can quickly build prototypes for data analysis. You
can also use them to document and present your results. However, they are not
well suited for reproducing your results with kernel, with which they have been able to run
successfully in the past. Although you can use
pd.show_versions() to display
Information about the host operating system and the versions of installed Python packages,
this is unfortunately not sufficient to reproduce such an environment.
«Non-reproducible single occurrences are of no significance to science.»
In order for others to be able to use your code, it should meet some conditions:
You should not silently rely on specific resources and environments
Required software packages and hardware should be specified in the requirements
Path information will only work in a different context within your package or in previously generated directories and files
Do not share secrets like login details or internal IP numbers in your published product
There are various tools that support you in creating shareable products. These can be tools on the one hand for the versioning of the source code and the training data as well as for the reproducibility of the execution environments, on the other hand for Testing, Logging, documenting and creating packages.
