Headed to the 2019 AGU Fall Meeting in San Francisco in December? Here’s your Pangeo guide to tutorials, presentations, and meetups for this years meeting. See this discourse post for up to date discussion on this year’s AGU happenings.
Scott Henderson, Amanda Tan Lehr, Joe Hamman, and Jessica Scheick will be running a 4-hour Pangeo Tutorial on Sunday December 8th at 13:40–18:00. Details are below. Note that there are only a few slots available so sign up now if you are interested in attending.
Abstract: Bring your laptop to this hands-on workshop sponsored by the Pangeo project! Pangeo is first and foremost a community promoting open, reproducible, and scalable science (read more at https://pangeo.io). Participants will learn about Python and several open-source software packages for analytic workflows with big data in Earth Science. Particular emphasis will be given to Jupyter, Xarray, and Dask software libraries for analysis of multidimensional modeling and remote sensing data sets. In this half-day workshop, participants will familiarize themselves with writing code in Jupyter Notebooks that can be run on scalable computing clusters running on the Cloud, bypassing a common bottleneck of downloading ever-increasing volumes of remote sensing or modeling data. We will have both introductory tutorials and advanced examples used in peer-reviewed research in the fields of oceanography, hydrology, and solid earth geophysics. For those interested in building JupyterHub infrastructure for research groups we briefly discuss how your research group can deploy Pangeo on local servers, HPC systems, or commercial Clouds.
- 1 hr: Introduction to Pangeo project, JupyterHubs, software ecosystem, and data access
- 1.5 hr: Hands-on interactive tutorial of python tools: xarray, dask, geopandas
- 1.5 hr: Example scientific workflows with satellite imagery, climate, and hydrologic modeling
There are also a few other tutorials that you may be interested in:
- SCIWS5 Best Practices for Developing and Sustaining Your Open-Source Research Software
- SCIWS3 Applications of Big Data and High-Performance Computing in Earth Sciences
Of course there will be lots of talks and posters at AGU that use Pangeo or related tools. The list is certainly too long to post here but we’ve grabbed a few obvious ones that we think many Pangeans will be interested in. See this discourse post for an up to date, crowd sourced version of this list.
