SageDays are gatherings of people interested in SageMath, from newcomers to contributors. Sage Days have been organized as local, regional, or international in-person meetings by a wide range of people around the globe. Because of the current global health crisis, we organize SageDays 109 as the first fully virtual event in the series.

Sage is a mature, comprehensive, free (open-source) mathematics software system based on Python, licensed under the GNU General Public License, that integrates computer algebra facilities and general computational packages.
Sage, first released in 2005, in over a decade of incubation in the SageMath distribution, comprising 293 software packages, has grown its own library of 1000 Cython and over 4400 Python modules, ranging from sage.algebras.* over sage.geometry.* to sage.tensor.*, with a total of over 2.2 million lines of code.
SageMath 9.0, released in January 2020, completed the transition of the Sage library to Python 3.
How to participate
Please register (ASAP) if you intend to participate: https://zulip.sagemath.org/#narrow/stream/126-sd109/topic/Registration.20for.20Global.20Virtual.20SageDays.20109
Video conferencing. We will mainly be using a free (open source) software solution for videoconferencing: Discussions and talks will happen via BigBlueButton (BBB; see Wikipedia page; license). We will use the BBB servers at Orsay and/or other French institutions. For the convenience of presenters, we may also use Zoom or Google Meet.
- Details, schedule, how to access: will be announced on the Zulip stream.
Update: Videos and materials available
To offer or request additional presentations on specific topics, please edit https://trac.sagemath.org/wiki/SagePresentationsMarketplace and/or post a message in the zulip stream #sd109.

Introduction to Sage
We give step-by-step instructions on how to install Sage 9.1 from source.
Experienced developers will help if any problems appear.
Spontaneous celebrations on completed installations are encouraged.
Sage User Forum
We would love to hear from users of SageMath how they use Sage... in research, in education, in applications, ...
