LSST Software Community "Stack Club"
Come and learn about the LSST processing software (the "LSST Software Stack") by working your way through one of our community-built tutorial Jupyter notebooks, and then extending it to do the things you are most interested in. We'll provide access to a JupyterLab instance, so no installation will be required: you can just jump in. We'll give you a quick guided tour of the tutorials we've got, and a demonstration of one of them in action. Then, we'll break up into a short hack session. The Stack Club is an LSSTC-supported initiative that will be active by video through the Fall: you can get started in Tucson at the PCW, and then carry on learning with us when you get home.
- Please register for a temporary LSST Science Platform account for use at the meeting if you don’t already have one.
- You can browse the Stack Club GitHub repo to find out more about what we are doing
- Check out the slides for this session (under development until Monday 1:30pm PDT)
- The session will be in the Joshua Tree room, but we'll use the Stack Club Zoom Room, https://stanford.zoom.us/j/946390572, instead of BlueJeans (so that we can record the session). Here's the program for the session:

How to Write a Stack Club Tutorial (~10 mins)
