Obtaining and Installing Sage
We will standardize on Sage Version 4.4, so please have that version installed on you computer (this is a very new release, and it might be a day or two until the binaries for version 4.4 are available).
To install Sage, please visit the Sage website, click download and follow the instructions. You can either download and install a binary for your system, or you can compile from source. Be aware that compiling from source takes a long time.
A tour of Sage closely follows the tour of Mathematica that is at the beginning of the Mathematica Book.
Exploring Mathematics with Sage: a free, open-source mathematical workshop
Project Euler: Project Euler is a series of challenging mathematical/computer programming problems that will require more than just mathematical insights to solve. This is a great source of problems to attempt while learning Sage/Python.
There are several proposed topics for coding sprints on the Sage-Combinat Road Map. Others can/will be posted here.
