Pangeo hackathon at AMS 2023?

It would be great to have a Pangeo hackathon at the AMS conference in January! This could be a side-meeting during the conference (January 8 - 12) or a separate event the day after the conference (Friday January 13).

If there’s enough interest, we could have break-out groups working on some of the topics discussed at the SciPy community gathering, e.g.,:

  • support for physical units
  • regridding improvements
  • infrastructure for machine learning pipelines
  • pangeo website improvements

Please give this a thumbs up heart if you’d be interested in participating in a Pangeo hackathon at AMS so we can gage interest, and even better if you want to post feedback or share ideas for break-out groups!

In the past Pangeo ML group meetings, people have talked about the ML datasets hosted on Pangeo. That might be a good topic as well given there are two topics during the AMS AI conference on benchmark datasets for AI/ML research.

Sounds like a ton of fun. Please count me in! Easy to participate since I’m local this year :slight_smile:


It’s great to see all the interest in a Pangeo hackathon at AMS!

For those who are interested in helping organize the event (@paigem, @mgrover1?, …), here’s a poll for scheduling a meeting to go over logistics either Friday or next week. Looking forward to putting this together!
