Shape the future of IBM!

We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:

Post your ideas

Post ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,

  1. Post an idea

  2. Upvote ideas that matter most to you

  3. Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea

Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests

The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The product management team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.

Receive notification on the decision

Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

Enable Visual Debugger for JupyterLab environments

We have many our data scientist Python developers asking for the visual debugger tool that is now standard part of modern JupyterLab package. However the version that is currently available in CPD 4.0.5 is fairly old (Version 3.0.12). It can be enabled manually in this older version but the available environment doesn't seem to include the hooks or needed functions to do this.

We are requesting that the ability to enable the visual debugger be made available or that JupyterLab be updated to a later release that includes the debugger by default.

Having a visual debugger available would make troubleshooting errors and optimizing code much more efficient while saving many hours of work doing this manually line by line.
