Register Now for the 2024 Pythia Cook-off!

Project Pythia Logo

Registration is open for the 2024 Pythia Cook-off! This U.S. National Science Foundation-funded hackathon for Cookbook development will grow participants’ Python coding, communication, collaboration, and educational development skills, while expanding the collection of Pythia Cookbooks for the open source, open science community. Pythia Cookbooks are crowd-sourced collections of domain-specific tutorials and exemplar workflows, building on existing Pythia Foundations tutorials. Cookbooks are supported by a rich GitHub-based infrastructure enabling collaborative authoring and automated health-checking to ensure reproducibility.

From the Cook-off announcement:

The cook-off will be held online via Zoom or in-person at the NCAR Mesa Lab in Boulder, CO June 11-14 2024. Registration closes May 26, 2024.

Hackathon might be a new word to some, but this event is open to students, researchers, developers, and professionals across a variety of coding skill levels. Project Pythia encourages anyone interested in online learning resources in geoscientific Python, even as users or non-code contributors, to visit ProjectPythia.org/pythia-cookoff-2024/ for further information and registration!

If you're already familiar with the scientific Python ecosystem, consider registering to lead a small breakout group of excited participants to gather around similar new ideas or pre-existing content. We will have breakouts focusing on Unidata's MetPy and Siphon, as well as a variety of other atmospheric science topic areas.

New in 2024: Project Pythia also has a limited supply of NSF funding to support some or all travel expenses for in-person participants! Register by March 29 for priority consideration for financial support , and check out the Travel Information page for details. If you have any questions, please reach out to projectpythia@ucar.edu or in our Pangeo Discourse forum thread.

Even if you can't make it yourself, consider forwarding this on to your colleagues, departments, and students.
