Google Colaboratory (Colab) notes

Google Colaboratory is awesome tool for running python code or say jupyter notebooks of python-3 kernels online in the browser on top notch processors in cloud. Hence, easily access it from anywhere without any local installations.

  • Write and execute Python-3 in your browser.
  • Jupyter notebook stored in google drive.
  • Easy sharing.
  • Access to GPUs.
  • Colab is used extensively in the machine learning community.
  • Version controlling is not that smooth. But can easily save to github and open from github.
  • Make use of checkpoints and revision history for managing versions.
  • Resources are allocated via virtual machines for a limited time.
  • Dataframes can be viewed as an interactive table.
  • Third party packages can be installed using pip !pip install pandas.
