April has been a busy month of conferences, RDA Plenary sessions and welcoming new community members! This month’s round-up from 4TU.ResearchData features the latest news about 3D climate models, managing geospatial data with Python, and details about how to confess your coding catastrophes!
- Urban microclimate modelling with SPACERGY
PhD student Daniella Maiullari received last year’s Data Refinement Fund to publish her CityGML 3D city models of Almere’s new urban district in 4TU.ResearchData.
Read more about how Daniela’s datasets simulate the energy and microclimate of the district to be showcased at Floriade 2022.
- ‘Python Essentials for GIS Learners’: A targeted FAIR research workshop
Ashley Cryan and José Urra Llanusa from TU Delft’s Digital Competence Centre developed a 3-day online workshop to teach fundamental concepts of programming with Python, version control with Git, working with the command line, and how tools for each skill can be used to find, explore, produce, and share FAIR geospatial data.
Read more about their experience, lessons learned and plans to deliver future workshops!
- Coding Confessions: Celebrating the SSI #COLLABW21 Hack Day Runners-up!
4TU.ResearchData’s data trainer, Eirini Zormpa, and collaborators won second place for their project, ‘Coding Confessions’, during the Software Sustainability Institute’s Collaboration Workshop Hack Day. The project invites you to confess your coding errors and normalise failure so that more people feel comfortable to share code!
Coding confessions needs YOU!
