Happy New Year, icepyx users! I’ve discovered that I have a conflict for our January and February second Tuesday meetings. I’m taking an online course (funnily enough, on community engagement) that meets at the same time. Is anyone else available to open/host these meetings (tomorrow, 12 Jan and/or 9 Feb)?

Excited to kick off 2021 contributions to icepyx with today’s open meeting for all users, contributors, enthusiasts, and curious folks working with ICESat-2 data. Come share how you’ve been using icepyx, what you wish it did [better], or where you’d like to see us go!

Monday, 25 January 2021 at 8pm GMT (4pm Eastern, 1pm Pacific). Launch Meeting - Zoom

I have a class during tomorrow’s regularly scheduled meeting. Thus, we’re going to reschedule this week’s meeting for Wednesday 10 Feb at 12pm Eastern (4pm GMT - same time, next day). I look forward to seeing you all there!

Next meeting is coming up in <24 hours. We’re getting close to releasing a minor v0.3.3 release (will be on conda-forge too), and there might be some chat about Data visualization with OpenAltimetry API by icetianli · Pull Request #144 · icesat2py/icepyx · GitHub and other things that come to mind. Here’s a fancy timezone converter for the meeting:

There’s been some daylight saving shifts last week in North America so double check your times everyone! Next meeting coming up in <12 hours (sorry for the short notice):

We’ve actually quietly released icepyx v0.3.3 last week on both PyPI and conda-forge! There’s been some snags with getting the documentation page built however, and we’ll try and sort that out soon, see add conda info for v0.3.4 release · Issue #185 · icesat2py/icepyx · GitHub.

Thanks for the reminder, @weiji14! I unfortunately have a conflict with tomorrow’s meeting. I can come to the beginning to get folks started and hand over host privileges so somebody else can record. Is anyone available to make this happen?
