Python-Focused Software Training Workshop at Metro State University of Denver

Metro State University, Denver

Metro State University in Denver, Colorado will be hosting a Unidata Regional Software Training Workshop March 8, 2019. Unidata software developers will be leading the one-day Python-focused workshop, which will cover the use of the MetPy and Siphon packages in the context of atmospheric science. 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 Metro State students and staff; we encourage those within easy travel distance to consider attending.
