Sharing and explaining the results of your analysis can be a lot easier and much more fun when you can create an animated story of the charts containing your insights. ipyvizzu-story - a new open-source presentation tool for Jupyter & Databricks notebooks and similar platforms - enables just that using a simple Python interface.

In this tutorial, one of the creators of ipyvizzu-story introduces this tool and helps the audience take the first steps in utilizing the power of animation in data storytelling. After the tutorial, the members can start building and presenting animated data stories independently.

After a brief introduction to the technology, participants will see a step-by-step walkthrough of creating an interactive, animated data story within Jupyter.
