The Second AMS Python Symposium will be held at the 2012 Annual Meeting in New Orleans. There will, of course, be talks at the conference, but one idea I wanted to collect feedback on is a code sprint. Of course, this leads to the question what would we be sprinting towards? I wanted to collect ideas in this post for possible projects. Regardless of whether we do this at the 2012 meeting, I wanted to write down these ideas so we don’t forget them. Remember, this is a brainstorm (initials of the contributor follows each item):
- Django-powered webapp for disseminating climate services information (DR).
- A layer of visualization abstractions for PyNGL, i.e., a library of routines which provide Matlab-like functionality to creating plots, letting the user specify necessary information but take care of setting the resources and other boilerplate stuff (DR).
- Extend the SharpPy package (a Python version of the SkewT/Hodograph Analysis and Research Program) (PM).
- Extensions to NumPy/SciPy/matplotlib to include meteorology/climatology-specific functionality (PM).
Please email me ideas you have <johnny at johnny-lin.com> and I’ll add them!
