Using Micropython to connect an Adafruit Feather Huzzah ESP8266 to WiFi

This is the fifth part of a multipart series on Micropython. In the last post we used the Micropython REPL (the Microcpython prompt) running on the Adafruit Feather Huzzah ESP8266 board to read the temperature off a temperature sensor.

Adding Google OAuth and system service to a Jupyter Hub server

This is the sixth part of a multi-part series that shows how to set up Jupyter Hub for a college class. In this post, we will set up jupyterhub to run as a system service in the background which will allow us to work on the server and run jupyterhub at the same time. Then we will add an authentication system so that users can log into our Jupyter Hub server using github usernames and passwords. Finally we will modify the authentication system so that users can log into our Jupyer Hub server using their google usernames and passwords. The same user name and password a student uses to access their college email.

Adding SSL and a domain name to Jupyter Hub

This is the fifth part of a multi-part series that shows how to set up Jupyter Hub for a college class. In this post, we are going to link a domain name to our server IP address, add SSL security and configure nginx to run as a proxy in between users and jupyterhub. Then we'll run jupyterhub over https using the SSL security we created.
