New Python developer group

May 17, 2018, from Alexandria DeWolfe

NASA Heliophysics is starting a series of discussions around Python software development for solar physics, space physics, and planetary science, in order to coordinate our efforts, identify potential collaborations, establish software standards and conventions, ensure interoperability, and so on. We’ll be holding an in-person “Birds-of-a-Feather” meeting at the TESS conference on Wednesday evening (5/23, 6-8 pm in the Thurber Room at the Lansdowne), and following that up with a series of telecons and more in-person discussions at future meetings including CEDAR, COSPAR, and AGU. If you’d like to be involved in this effort, contact Aaron Roberts ( or Alex DeWolfe ( with any questions or comments.
