What is a Jupyter notebook? I hear “notebook” mentioned often in relation to ML, why?

I’m just getting started with the ChatGPT Prompt Engineering for Developers course (which I don’t see a category for here) and I see lots of talk about “Jupyter notebook” – what is it?

A browser-based environment for marking up (commenting in text) and writing code for software projects.

So it’s like a browser-based IDE?

Why is it so popular in ML circles?

It eliminates the need for programming tools to be installed locally, and it allows for easy code sharing and collaboration.
