[python #IEZ-401417]: python kernel switcher plugin


The way I usually manage this is with Miniconda/Anaconda and 3 environments, 
together with the nb_conda_kernels plugin. You'll also want to make sure you 
have the conda-forge channel set up for conda:

conda config --add channels conda-forge

1) Environment for the jupyter notebook

conda create -n notebook notebook nb_conda_kernels

2) Environment for Python 2

conda create -n py2 python=2 ipykernel

3) Environment for Python 3

conda create -n py3 python=3 ipykernel

To run the notebook then, you switch to the notebook environment and start the 

conda activate notebook
jupyter notebook

Does that all make sense to you? I know it's a tad complicated, I'm not sure 
how they set up your multiple environments for the workshop.
