Earth Science Information Partners is an open, networked community that brings together science, data, and information technology practitioners that work with Earth and space scientists. Its members have a variety of technical and social expertise in solving the information problems that arise in the curation of earth and space science datasets.
Many community members present or hold workshops to demonstrate how others can use their workflow, data, code or module. Increasingly, these demonstrations are led using Jupyter notebooks. However, the high setup cost of the workshop environment can mean that many attendees only get to focus on the “how” rather than the “why” of the workshop, due to the inordinate amount of time spent setting up a workshop environment that is unlikely to be used by participants again. Furthermore, a lack of clarity or attention during the workshop tutorial negatively affects participant engagement, forcing participants to give up or miss out on crucial steps.
To better support and promote workshops, both for participants and workshop demonstrators, ESIP is building a JupyterHub to lower workshop setup and delivery barriers and promote reproducibility for all attendees, regardless of their technical expertise. Join in to discover lessons learned utilizing JupyterHub and Jupyter notebooks to facilitate workshops for participants and demonstrators at the ESIP 2018 Summer Meeting in Tuscon, Arizona. You’ll learn the benefits of the hub infrastructure and platform tools being developed and find out how to participate in expanding and developing this valuable open resource.
