Unidata is looking for a Software Developer

IDV

The Unidata Program Center is hiring! We are looking for a scientific software developer to join our team in creating and maintaining software and data services to support the geosciences.

We are looking for a software developer to help us help our community of scientists bridge the gaps between data servers, desktop scientific visualization packages like the Integrated Data Viewer, and “notebook”-style workflows (think Jupyter notebooks). We'll be integrating existing tools with new technologies to help scientists streamline the process of finding and analyzing data. At the Unidata Program Center, you'll have a chance to work with a great team in-house and an enthusiastic open source community.

Unidata Committee Nominations Open

Description

Unidata is governed by its community. Our governing committees facilitate consensus-building for future directions of the Unidata Program and establish standards of involvement for the community. Direct involvement in the Program by the academic community helps Unidata stay on top of trends in education and research; for example, recent initiatives on Python and cloud-based computing have benefited tremendously from committee advice and involvement.

The Unidata Program Center is seeking new people to serve on Unidata's Strategic Advisory and Users Committees. This is your chance to make a difference on behalf of the Unidata community. As William Gallus, the current Chair of the Unidata Strategic Advisory Committee notes, “Serving as a member of these committees puts you in the driver's seat to help shape the future of Unidata and thus the future of real time weather data delivery and the means to work with it.”

Python-Focused Software Training Workshop at the University of Wisconsin

University of Wisconsin

The University of Wisconsin, Madison will be hosting a three-day Unidata Regional Software Training Workshop June 5-7, 2017, with an optional hackathon following on June 8. Unidata software developers will be leading the Python-focused workshop, which will cover the use of the MetPy and Siphon packages in the context of atmospheric science and introduce the National Weather Service's Common AWIPS Visualization Environment (CAVE) along with Python tools for working with AWIPS data services. A basic familiarity with Python is assumed — check out the Unidata Online Python Training for a refresher.

Unidata holds regional workshops in part to facilitate easy access to software training for those who may not be able to travel to training workshops held at the Unidata Program Center in Boulder, Colorado. Attendance is explicitly not limited to University of Wisconsin students and staff; we encourage those within easy travel distance to consider attending.

Help Unidata: Tell Us Your Stories

Map Wall

In preparation for a routine review of the Unidata Program by our sponsors at the National Science Foundation, we are collecting anecdotes that illustrate the ways in which Unidata's activities have benefitted you, your research, your teaching, your students, or your community.

If you've got a story that hinges on data you received through the Internet Data Distribution (IDD) system, or on visualizations created with the Integrated Data Viewer (IDV), or your experiences with AWIPS, GEMPAK, or metPy, tell us!
