It's that time of year. Time to start getting excited about this year’s Ignite@AGU! Speakers have been selected and it is a fantastic group. Keep an eye on @ESIPfed on Twitter as we highlight speakers in the leadup to the AGU Fall Meeting. But as a preview, I’ve combined a few words from each of their titles to create some intrigue: “Geomorphology digging disaster: A high elevation explosion in things that annoy me about space exploration.” Ignite@AGU will be in person at the AGU Fall Meeting on December 15!
Some more exciting news from around ESIP, Geoweaver is reaching its 1.0 stable release — this is a big deal. A project that started out with <$10K of funding through the ESIP Lab is ushering a paradigm shift in the way researchers develop and share full-stack workflows. Congrats, Ziheng Sun from George Mason University on all your hard work!
