2020 Software Training Workshop University of Alaska, Fairbanks

The University of Alaska, Fairbanks will be hosting a Unidata Regional
Software Training Workshop April 22-23, 2020. Unidata software developers
will be leading the two-day Python-focused workshop, which will cover the
use of the MetPy and Siphon packages in the context of atmospheric science.
A basic familiarity with Python is assumed — check out the Unidata Python
Training <https://unidata.github.io/python-training/> site for a refresher.

Unidata holds regional workshops in part to facilitate easy access to
software training for those who may not be able to travel to training
workshops held at the Unidata Program Center in Boulder, Colorado.
Attendance is explicitly *not* limited to local students and staff; we
encourage those within the state of Alaska to consider attending. Financial
support is available for those who must travel from outside Fairbanks.
