Welcome to the Open Source at GoDataDriven, March 2018 edition.

what our own Fokko defined as "pure art!"

Fokko wasn’t exactly dormant though — even though he might have had to do open source work while

I played a bit more with JupyterLab, resulting in PR 579, 580, and 586 to Jupyter‘s
own docker-stack.

Now onto the next bit!
