The European Weather Cloud (EWC) teams at ECMWF and EUMETSAT are pleased to invite you to the second thematic EWC webinar of 2024.

These recurring thematic webinars are aimed at new or prospective users of the EWC service which is available to all ECMWF and EUMETSAT Member and Co-operating States. Our primary objective is to provide guidance to users on how to effectively use the different capabilities of the EWC.

While the previous introductory webinars focused on the basics to get you started (you can find more information, including the video recordings, here and here), in this series we explore various aspects of cloud utilization through examples, with a specific emphasis on key functionalities and cloud skills.

This upcoming webinar will take place on 23 April 2024 at 8:00 UTC, and will be about Using Jupyter on the EWC to interact with ECMWF datasets. If you would like to attend, we kindly ask you to register here. We will alert you of your acceptance to the webinar and send you all the joining information and Microsoft Teams meeting details in due course.

Throughout this webinar, we will guide you through the step-by-step process of spinning up your personalized Jupyter instance on the cloud including the provisioning of the virtual infrastructure required, as well as how to automate the deployment of the necessary software stack with ansible and git.

Once our Jupyter platform is up and running, we will explore various examples illustrating how to work with ECMWF datasets. From downloading and processing data to visualizing insights in an interactive manner, this webinar aims to equip you with additional tools and knowledge needed to leverage the power of the European Weather Cloud to access your favorite weather and climate datasets.

By the end of this 1-hour session, participants will have learnt about how to automate the provisioning of a cloud service such as Jupyter as well as familiarized themselves with different tools to access the ECMWF Data Services portfolio.
