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
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.
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!
