Microsoft has announced that you'll be able to run .NET code in Jupyter Notebooks, specifically C# and F#, and therefore ML.NET as well. The new support is enabled by the .NET kernel for Jupyter and Try .NET.

The announcement of the new support was made at the Microsoft Ignite conference. Jupyter Notebooks are open source web applications that contain live code and equations along with visualizations and narrative text.

Try .NET is a tool introduced by Microsoft earlier this year. It's an interactive documentation generator for .NET Core that you can use to create executable C# snippets for your websites, or interactive markdown files that users can run on their machine. Since its launch Try .NET has grown to support runnable code snippets, and it has now been used to create .NET Jupyter Notebooks.

The initial set of features in the new tool mean that when writing C# or F# in a .NET Notebook, you'll be using C# Scripting or F# interactive. As with 'standard' Jupyter notebooks, you can display useful information about an object in table format. The tool ships with several helper methods for writing HTML, including basic helpers that can be used to write out a string as HTML, to output Javascript, or work with more complex HTML with PocketView.

In addition to F# and C#, .NET Jupyter can be used for ML.NET and .NET for Apache Spark. This is a set of .NET bindings for Spark are written on the Spark interop layer. At the moment you can use Azure Synapse Analytics Notebooks and Azure HDInsight Spark + Jupyter Notebooks. Both let you write and run quick ad-hoc queries in addition to developing complete, end-to-end big data scenarios, such as reading in data, transforming it, and visualizing it.

.NET Jupyter Notebooks is available to try now on GitHub.
