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.
