Students! Are you looking to make the transition to Python but unsure of where to start? Do you already know Python but want to see atmospheric science specific applications? Are you looking for data? If so, then please join us for a hands-on AMS Student Conference Python Workshop where beginners and experts alike will learn skills that enhance their ability to find, analyze, and explore data. All the workshop resources will be in the cloud, so no specialized local software installations are necessary. All you need is a laptop or tablet (a keyboard may be helpful) and a GitHub ID to participate.
Note: No prior experience with GitHub or Python is necessary to take part in this workshop!
To join us, begin by registering for the workshop. We'll need your GitHub user ID in order to provision the cloud resources you'll use for the workshop. If you don't have a GitHub ID yet, don't worry — they're easy to create and the accounts are free. Just point your browser to: https://github.com/join.
Note: Please register by January 7, 2021, so we can get everything set up.
Things will kick off with two orientation sessions during the AMS Student Conference:
- Session A: Sunday, January 10, 2021, 1:00 PM - 1:30 PM EST
- Session B: Sunday, January 10, 2021, 1:30 PM - 2:00 PM EST
(Pick one session to attend; they'll both present the same information.)
After the orientation, you'll choose a project to work on over the course of the week. Remote follow-up help will be available — visit Unidata's Virtual AMS Booth to learn how to join our video networking “office hours.” Workshop sessions and office hours will be staffed by an elite team of student volunteers who have signed up to help show you how using Python can benefit your science.
To learn more about the workshop, visit the Unidata AMS 2021 Python Workshop site.
We hope you'll join us for the workshop!
