The aim of this presentation is to introduce the audience to the Unidata Online Python Training website. This project is an interactive, geoscience focused approach to learning Python. There are many excellent books and websites to learn Python, and this effort does not aim to duplicate those resources. Rather, we take the approach that geoscience students will be engaged to learn Python if they are presented with material relevant to the fields of atmospheric and oceanic science. The interactive Jupyter notebooks attempt to cast programming concepts with geoscience objectives. This presentation details progress made thus far, and future plans.
