Unidata Software Training Workshops:
Tell Us What You Think

2016 Training Workshop

Unidata's annual Software Training Workshops at the Unidata Program Center in Boulder, Colorado provide training and guidance on the use of Unidata software packages. While the workshops are designed primarily to benefit the academic community, representatives from government agencies and commercial entities are also invited to participate. This year's workshop ran from October 17-28, and saw strong attendance from all three groups.

In recent years we have heard from community members that it is more and more difficult to attend training workshops held at the Program Center in Boulder. As a result, we are asking for your input on the sorts of software training that would be most useful, in the hope of maximizing the benefits for our academic members while continuing to serve the larger community.

Daryl Herzmann of Iowa State University has been awarded the 2016 Russell L. DeSouza Award by the Unidata Users committee. The DeSouza Award honors “individuals whose energy, expertise, and active involvement enable the Unidata Program to better serve the geosciences.”

Among other activities, Herzmann administers the Iowa Environmental Mesonet website (http://mesonet.agron.iastate.edu/), and provides a Local Data Manager (LDM) feed of the data to community members. He has been instrumental in mantaining a widely-used archive of case study data in GEMPAK and McIDAS AREA formats. In recent years, he has been an advocate for bringing Python-based workflows into the atmospheric science community; his presentation “Web Services & Python use for Meteorology” at the 2012 Unidata Users Workshop helped inspire efforts by Unidata Program Center developers to expand the use of Python in the community.
