[Bioc-devel] Using BioC vignettes as Jupyter Notebooks

last week over a beer some of us realized that (technically)
it is possible to run most[1] Rmd vignettes as Jupiter Notebook. 

So I created https://github.com/sneumann/bioc_notebooks 
which takes some example packages and creates a Docker container 
with converted vignettes. The resulting container 
can be hosted locally, or on the binder system (see README).

We found this to be fun, and it could be used 
as a great training resource. Only downside is 
that the resulting containers are not exactly light-weight.
