About DataStax Studio notebooks

Information about DataStax Studio self-documenting notebooks.

Notebooks provide an intuitive interface for developers and analysts to collaborate by mixing code, documentation, and visualizations for query results. A notebook consists of one or more cells.

Notebooks combine a web browser user interface with the DataStax Enterprise scalable database. Notebooks provide a sharable interface to access data and enable collaboration, sharing, and explanation.

Notebooks contain the inputs and outputs of an interactive session and descriptive text that accompanies the code.
