The State University of New York at Albany in Albany, New York hosted a Unidata Regional Software Training Workshop May 29-30, 2019. Unidata software developers led the two-day Python-focused workshop, which will cover the use of the MetPy and Siphon packages in the context of atmospheric science.
Valparaiso University in Valparaiso, Indiana will be hosting a Unidata Regional Software Training Workshop August 12-13, 2019. Unidata software developers will be leading the two-day Python-focused workshop, which will cover the use of the MetPy and Siphon packages in the context of atmospheric science.
A workshop at Valparaiso originally scheduled for March, 2019 was cancelled when a severe winter storm prevented Unidata instructors from traveling to Indiana. The August workshop will have the same agenda as was planned for March.
On March 25, the High Plains Regional Climate Center (HPRCC) hosted a workshop on accessing climate data using THREDDS Data Servers. Ten faculty, staff, and students from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln were in attendance and represented a wide variety of disciplines, including agriculture, climatology, and ecology. The workshop provided an opportunity for the participants to interact with data on a THREDDS Data Server and learn about netCDF data. For many, this was a brand new experience.
The Unidata Program Center is seeking new people to serve on Unidata's Strategic Advisory and Users Committees. This is your chance to make a difference on behalf of the Unidata community.
