Unidata community members Ivo Jimenez and Dr. Carlos Maltzahn from the University of California, Santa Cruz, along with Kevin Tyle from the University at Albany, will be presenting an AMS Short Course titled Reproducible Atmospheric Science Workflows Using Open Source Tools: An Introduction to the Popper Experimentation Protocol. The course focuses on an exciting new open-source toolset developed by researchers at UC Santa Cruz with specific tie-ins to reproducible workflows in atmospheric science modeling using the Weather Research and Forecasting model (WRF), both in research and the classroom.
The goal of this half-day course is to give an overview and introduction of The Popper Experimentation Protocol, a series of simple, easy-to-follow steps for implementing experiments following a DevOps approach. The second part of the course consists of a series of hands-on exercises in which the audience makes use of the Popper command-line tool in order to re-run an existing WRF execution using Git and Docker, as well as post-analysis using Jupyter (Python) notebooks.
The short course will be held from 8:30-12:00 on
7 January 2018. For more information and registration see:
