I'm a python noob, but am experiencing an issue that I think is on quantopian's side. I am referencing the example notebook from here: https://www.quantopian.com/data/quandl/cboe_vix
Basically, when you try to print the dataset (or a slice) it prints the object name instead of the data. For example:
from quantopian.interactive.data.quandl import cboe_vix cboe_vix[:3] # output: <quantopian>.quandl.cboe_vix[:3]
The example notebook provides a different result, but when you manually run it the result changes to what I'm getting.
