I wanted to start a discussion regarding an Open Radar Short Course (or something similar) at the 40th AMS Radar Conference in Aug/Sep 2023. I spoke to Scott Collis and am planning to work with Max on exactly what we want to focus the course on. We can make this a sounding board to further get a sense of what folks liked about ERAD22’s course, as well as the upcoming AMS Annual course. I look forward to working with you!

I especially like the fact that the previous short course covered both the Py-ART (DOE) and LROSE (NSF) ecosystems.
You’ll have a mixture of attendees who come from widely varying backgrounds and ability levels. With the large footprint of the radar conference, it might make sense to divide the short course up into “beginner” and “advanced” modules.
I too am not sure whether I’ll be able to attend, but I would like BALTRAD to be represented at the course. Hoping I can find a younger talent who can step in for me. In the meantime, please count me in.
