A typical FAS OnDemand Jupyter Notebooks installation comes with a Python 3 jupyter kernel and common data science packages such as numpy, scipy, seaborn, pandas, bokeh, and matplotlib, among others. 

An FAS OnDemand RStudio installation is available for R 4.0.0 and 3.6.3, and comes preinstalled with common packages such as ggplot2, corrplot, devtools, learnr, as well as the complete Tidyverse collection of R packages.

Custom configurations are also available based on the specific packages you need for your course.
