It is by now well established that software plays an increasingly important role in scientific research. We are gradually recognizing the importance of tools that are robust, well-tested, documented, and that support reproducible research practices. However, the development of such tools is a complex,resource-intensive process for which most scientists are poorly trained, and that is rarely recognized by the incentive structures of professional research.
In this talk, I will discuss some of the work we have done in Project Jupyter from the perspective of these issues.  I will highlight some recent technical developments in Jupyter that may be of interest to the GCC/BOSC audience, and will discuss lessons we have learned in over 15 years of building these tool sat the intersection of research, education and industrial partnerships.

Fernando's keynote is sponsored by BOSC and GCC.
