Sage Days 103 : Women in sage (2019)

August 7-9, 2019 St. Louis, MO

These Sage days are a special event for women* who develop in SageMath or wish to learn Sage. They will include introduction presentations, training, and team work on specific projects. There is no initial knowledge needed, everyone is welcome whether they are new Sage learners or Sage expert. We believe in diversity in backgrounds and experiences.

*This event is primarily targeted at women as to help form a team of women developers and to reduce the gap between men and women developers in Sage Math in particular and in open scientific software in general. It is for all who self identify as a woman.


R. Lauren Miller is an adjunct at Fontbonne University. She has been working in sage since 2016.
