The program for the AMS Python Symposium is now available online. I’m really excited by the line-up of invited and contributed talks! The symposium this year also includes a Town Hall meeting entitled “Why Python is the Next Wave in Earth Sciences Computing” which is geared to helping non-programmers and decision-makers understand what Python is and how it can help their organizations.
This year, we’re also offering four Python short courses. Here are the course titles and dates:
- AMS Short Course: A Beginner’s Course to Using Python in Climate and Meteorology: Saturday-Sunday, 5-6 January 2013
- AMS Short Course on Intermediate Python: Using NumPy, SciPy, and Matplotlib: Saturday-Sunday, 5-6 January 2013
- AMS Short Course: High Performance Python for Climate Science: Saturday, 5 January 2013
- AMS Short Course on Big Data, Distributed systems Analyses: UV-CDAT: Sunday, 6 January 2013
Note that courses (3) and (4) are this year’s advanced courses. You can register for one or the other or both; each course’s registration is separate, however. Links to all short courses are found on short courses page. The price for each short course is listed on the short course registration page. Please let your colleagues know about the meeting! Look forward to seeing y’all in Austin!
