SnowEx Hackweek 2022
Event Type: Field Training and Schools
When: 11 July 2022 to 15 July 2022
Where: Seattle, Washington
SnowEx Hackweek 2022 will be hosted entirely in-person by the University of Washington's eScience Institute in partnership with the NASA SnowEx Mission.
Join the Hackweek for five days of tutorials, data exploration, software development and community building focused on open source tools to analyze and visualize data. This year’s hackweek will focus primarily on developing ongoing collaboration on radar and LiDAR snow retrievals, in situ observations and modeling, as well as tools for conducting open source science. Tutorials will focus on these topic areas, and projects will be designed around developing new tutorials that can be shared both in these focus areas and broader topics. While accepted participants are required to attend the in-person hackweek, our goal is to co-design a curriculum that can be openly delivered and extended to the public community in a series of biweekly, virtual tutorials through Fall 2022.
The organizers welcome applications from participants at any career stage and level of technical ability. All tutorials and projects will use the Python programming language, and the organizers may provide optional educational opportunities in advance of the event for those new to Python based on demand.
Travel support will be offered to a limited number of applicants.
Application deadline: Friday, May 6th at 11:59 p.m. PST.
