ICESat-2 Hackweek Tutorials
Combined repository for final tutorials presented during the ICESat-2 HackWeek at the Univeristy of Washington on June 17-21, 2019
The ICESat-2 Cryospheric Science Hackweek was a 5-day hackweek held at the University of Washington. Participants learned about technologies used to access and process ICESat-2 data with a focus on the cryosphere. Mornings consisted of interactive lectures/tutorials, and afternoon sessions involved facilitated exploration of datasets and hands-on software development.
The tutorials were largely developed by volunteer instructors. Each tutorial was prepared and distributed as a separate repository under the ICESat-2 Hackweek Github organization. At the beginning of each tutorial, participants cloned the repository and interactively worked through the material with the instructor.
This ICESat2_hackweek_tutorials repository was created to centralize the final content from individual tutorial repositories and to provide a snapshot "release" of the material presented during the hackweek with a DOI for distribution to the larger community. Some of these tutorials may continue to evolve in individual repositories (see links below).
Re-create the icesat2 hackweek JupyterLab environment with Pangeo Binder
Clicking this button will launch a replica of the icesat2 hackweek JupyterLab image on AWS us-west-2 using a pangeo binder. This will give you the same functionality as we had during the hackweek, but the session is ephemeral. Your home directory will not persist, so use this only for running tutorials and other short-lived demos!
