Using Jupyter

You can launch Jupyter, which is included in Anaconda Python, from the Windows Program menu (the installer should have placed it in the Anaconda folder). You can create a new notebook by clicking on the New icon (in the upper right) and choosing one of the Notebook options. Once your new notebook starts, you can type standard Python commands or Gurobi Interactive Shell commands directly into the In window:

Our simple example shows a set of commands that create and solve a simple linear programming model, and then plot the resulting constraints and the computed optimal vertex.

For those of you who aren't familiar with notebook-style interfaces, they allow you to mix executable code, text, and graphics to create a self-documenting stream of results. Notebooks can be saved and continued later, which make them particularly well suited for prototyping and experimentation.
