Spring 2020 NCAR Python Tutorial Registration
We are planning our next Python tutorial 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 2 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!
We ask that you indicate whether you are interested and will attend any of these events. A copy of your responses will be emailed to the address you provide below, and if you need to change your responses in the future, you can do so from a link provided in that email.

Will you attend the Hackathon?
The Hackathon will be held April 8-10, 2020. It is a chance for participants to propose short project ideas and solicit participation on those projects over an intense, three-day period. Participants are encouraged to pitch project ideas of their own, or join in another person's project. Hackathons are an excellent way for people to learn how to collaborate on software, perfect their craft, and learn best practices.
