Updates

The CyberPaleo blog features updates from the LinkedEarth team and affiliates, as well as guest posts from various partners.

Discussion

  • Discourse: Announcements and general discussion is done through this forum. This is also a great place to ask for help with our tools (e.g. Pyleoclim, GeoChronR, LiPD). This is the best place to start getting involved with LinkedEarth.

  • SLACK: Our Slack workspace is mainly used for hackathons. Email us for an invitation.

  • GITHUB: All technical discussion should go through GitHub. Please use project-specific GitHub repositories (e.g. Pyleoclim repository). All of our packages follow the Open Development model. See each repository for guidelines.

Training

We offer training opportunities through the following modalities:

  • Hackathons:

    • paleoHack, dedicated to Python tools, particularly Pyleoclim:

      • Previous hackathon (2021, 2022) materials are available through this GitHub repository. The notebooks are released through myBinder and hosted on its own JupyterHub. Email us for a Hub account.

      • We will be hosting our next hackathon on Catalina Island in Summer 2023 (COVID-dependent). See here for details.

    • GeoChronR workshops (2016, 2017, 2021, 2022)
