CANCELLED: The Spring NCAR Python Tutorial -- Register Now!

The next NCAR Python tutorial is being planned for the spring of 2020.  Currently, we are planning 3 separate events:

  • Beginner Track:  March 26-27, 2020
  • Intermediate Track:  April 6-7, 2020
  • Hackathon:  April 8-10, 2020

The Beginner and Intermediate/Hackathon events are separated by a week to give beginners time to digest new information before (if they wish) attending the Intermediate tutorial and the Hackathon.

The Beginner Track tutorial is intended to introduce participants to the basics, such as Git, GitHub, Jupyter Notebooks & Lab, the Python Language, itself, as well as common Python packages such as Numpy, Pandas, Matplotlib, and Cartopy.

The Intermediate Track tutorial is designed to build upon the basic information, covering such things as Xarray, Dask, Holoviews, Intake and Intake-ESM, as well as covering how to solve common real-world problems with these tools, such as computing climatologies, dealing with unstructured grids, etc.

The Hackathon is designed to give participants a chance to use their new knowledge in the development of a tangible project that can be shared and used for real science, or just to provide participants with the opportunity to try out their new skills!

If you are interested in attending any, or all, of these events, we ask that you register herePlease note that you may change your registration at a later date, so if you are interested but can't be certain you can or will attend, we ask you to indicate as much in the registration form (e.g., by indicating "Maybe" when aswering questions about whether you will attend).  For more information, email Kevin Paul.
