Running Stan notebooks using Google Colab

I’ve written a report/case-study on how to create sharable Jupyter notebooks for teaching Stan.
this report also introduces CmdStanR and CmdStanPy to the wider world.
I’d appreciate feedback and comments before blogging about this on Andrew’s blog

Great.

Do you think we could create a github repo that contains the latest CmdStan binaries (for Google Colab)? It could automatically (?) update itself when CmdStan is released?

this should be doable and if so, it should be done.
I’m curious as to difference between transfer time between GitHub and Colab and Google S3 buckets and Colab. but otherwise, putting it with the other release tarballs makes perfect sense.
as long as Colab keeps same VM.
