I don’t like notebooks either. I agree with a lot of @joelgrus ‘s reasons and have a few others of my own
Notebooks generally don’t play very friendly with source control tools such as git
Some information, such as TensorFlow Prints, gets invisibly printed in the backend rather than in the notebook
I can easily run the same bash script 8 times with 8 arguments on an 8 GPU machine. A notebook takes a lot of manual clicking around to do that
A notebook means I need to set up my environment correctly in two places rather than one (front end and back end)
Notebooks often degrade worse on flaky shuttle / airplane WiFi than ssh / screen do
