As cryosphere scientists we understand the importance of programming and software development to advance understanding of our science. We also know that many scientists don't receive formal education in those critical skills. Let's face it, we all spend more time searching github and stack exchange than we want to!
In business, an incubator is a program that gives very early-stage companies access to mentorship, and other support to help them get established. We want to do the same for scientists who are programming in their research or want to start. We hope that through this community scientists can provide each other advice, feedback, and resources to help grow useful scientific tools. We will also provide mentorship and educational resources to gain skills in programming that are needed to succeed.
We have created this community to bring together cryosphere scientists to share their code regardless of how polished it is, so that we can learn from each other and build the development skills we need to succeed. Code and resources shared here will be available to community members to use in their own research and as the backbone of new tool development for Ghub through hack-a-thons.
