Hi everyone,

I wrote a post<http://peak5390.wordpress.com/2013/09/22/how-ipython-notebook-and-github-have-changed-the-way-i-teach-python/>this
week about how IPython Notebook has changed the way I teach
programming, and it got some good publicity on
HN<https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=6437925>.
The response from people was overwhelmingly supportive, well beyond what I
expected.

For people who didn't read the post, I basically created a set of
notebooks<http://nbviewer.ipython.org/urls/raw.github.com/ehmatthes/intro_programming/master/notebooks/intro_programming_index.ipynb>as
a basis for an intro to programming class. I posted them on github, so
that students could see the notebooks on Notebook Viewer. The viewer was
perfect for sharing my teaching notebooks with my students.

After sharing that blog post, I am wondering how well-used these notebooks
might become if the project is completed. How appropriate is Notebook
Viewer for a project like this?

I have considered doing my own conversion to html and setting up a static
site, but for now I really like how pushing changes to github updates the
public-facing project.

Thanks,

Eric Matthes
