Reminder: Register for MetPy Short Course at 2018 AMS Annual Meeting

AMS

Unidata developers Ryan May and John Leeman, together with Kevin Goebbert from Valparaiso University, will be teaching a one-day short course titled “Python for Dynamical Meteorology Using MetPy” at the 2018 AMS Annual Meeting in Austin, Texas. The format of the course is like that of our larger Python workshop, relying on Jupyter notebooks to teach several core concepts. The crux of the course is to access remote data sets and use MetPy to perform analyses relevant to synoptic/dynamic meteorology. The goal is to go beyond the traditional introduction to Python and work on some concrete, meteorology-specific problems. As a result, familiarity with Python, NumPy, and Matplotlib is assumed.
