Installing Anaconda, Running Jupyter on Nginx on Google Cloud Remotely

I was just using google collab when I realised it cannot really replace a remote server with a GPU. It is super awesome if you are trying to collaborate on a notebook with multiple authors but it does not really provide you the flexibility of terminal. There is certain extent to which "!" can go. Had google collab provided a virtual instance, it would have been super.
It is already amazing that they are providing GPUs and TPUs completely free of cost. It is too much to ask to give shell access free too, and it would be hard for them to nail down the activities such as mining or torrenting if they did, thus people would be making money on their hardware meant for educational purposes.

This post is about how to setup NGINX along with jupyter notebook.

1.) Let us first install Anaconda by downloading it from here,
https://www.anaconda.com/download/#linux

Once, you have installed anaconda on your virtual machine, it is time to install and make sure nginx is running.

2.) Set this as your nginx config file.
