For 15 years I have worked in weather operations, 4 of those years were space weather monitoring solar activity.
Most of my development projects are around atmospheric science.
fall 2021 - I used a 90 day GCP free trial to push my application into a K8 cluster. I had a need to read grib2 data so that I serve radar imagery to my application. They aren’t many NodeJS solutions for this task. Enter Python…
I found an older repo nasa/MMM-py that satisfied my need to read the radar grib data.
Since then I’ve been writing python on a nearly daily basis.
early 2022 - my operations center has permanently moved me into a position as a full time developer as we transition our applications to the cloud.
I really enjoy working with pandas, numpy, and the other data science libraries.
