Get Involved in Python Development for the Geosciences!

You may have noticed that Unidata Program Center developer Ryan May spends a bit of his time evangelizing the use of the Python language in the atmospheric sciences. This week he appears over on Johnny Lin's PyAOS (Python for the Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences) blog, weighing in on the future of AOS Python.

Ryan's post, titled “What's needed for the Future of AOS Python? Get Involved!,” lays out the case for widespread community involvement in AOS Python projects.

Unidata’s Jupyter Notebook Gallery

Jupyter Notebooks

As part of an ongoing effort at the Unidata Program Center to bring Python-based workflows to the atmospheric science community, UPC developers have created the Unidata Jupyter Notebook Gallery to showcase tools and techniques that may be of interest to community members. The gallery is a collection of Jupyter notebooks that demonstrate ways to work with atmospheric science data using Python. The notebooks use a variety of tools available in the Python ecosystem, including several developed by Unidata.

Successful Python Training Workshop in Madison, Wisconsin

Python Workshop at SSEC

From June 20th to June 24th 2016, Unidata Staff members Ryan May and Sean Arms led a Python Training workshop in Madison, Wisconsin. Within this four-day stretch, two Python training classes were held, each one two full days; the workshop content was based on Unidata's 3-day Annual Python Training Workshop, but tailored to the specific needs of the Space Science and Engineering Center (SSEC) and the Atmospheric and Oceanic Science (AOS) department at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. This was the fourth Python workshop Unidata staff have led, but the first held outside of the Unidata Program Center (UPC), located at UCAR's Foothills Lab in Boulder, Colorado.
