If you've been doing any work in data analysis you might have run across references to the Jupyter Notebook. Essentially this is an application that allows you to embed running bits of code into a text document. So you have text, then a code sample, and then (voila!) the graph that the sample produces. What's nice is that you can mess around with the code and see the results immediately - this is known as "interactive computing" and has been a mainstay of the reserach community for some time now (and you can also see web-based examples in code pens).
