Make Data Access/Distribution Painless with the Intake Workshop
Intake Workshop Overview
This two-hour workshop introduces participants to Intake, a lightweight package for finding, investigating, loading and disseminating data. Participants learn the fundamentals of using Intake to deploy data as would be required in industrial settings under various constraints (e.g., hardware, security, etc.).
We assume participants have prior experience using the Python language and, in particular, using standard Python tools for data analysis (notably NumPy, Pandas, Jupyter). No prior exposure to Intake is assumed.
At the end of this workshop, participants should be able to:
Explain and use Intake catalogs as a mechanism for data providers to simplify data access, querying, & ingest by data consumers
Ingest data as a consumer from a specified Intake catalog
Create, manage, & maintain data sources & parameters through an Intake catalog
