The structure of the workshop is as follows: there will be a few lectures each day and and the rest of the day is spent with intense working sessions. This will consist mostly of groups working to implement new functionality in Sage, or discussing design decisions for new features. One of the main goals of this workshop is get many bugs as listed on Sage's bug tracker (http://trac.sagemath.org/sage_trac/) fixed. Of course, every participant is free to work on whatever he/she feels most productive working on. For instance, a small group will focus on discussing and implementation JeanCharles Faugere's F5 algorithm for computing Gröbner bases. 
The structure of the workshop is as follows: there will be very few lectures, and the rest of the day is spent with intense working sessions. This will consist mostly of: * Fix bugs in Sage: there are hundreds of known documented bugs in Sage; let's fix them. * Write doctests: the coverage score of sage as of Jan 1 2009 is 64.3%; let's get this to 80% by writing about 3400 new doctests Though a small group will focus on discussing and implementation JeanCharles Faugere's F5 algorithm for computing Gröbner bases, ''by far the main goal of this workshop'' is '''fixing bugs and writing doctests''', which will uncover numerous additional bugs. 
Sage Days 12: San Diego
Sage is a free opensource mathematics software system licensed under the GPL. It combines the power of many existing opensource packages into a common Pythonbased interface. Sage Days 12 is a mainly developeroriented workshop for work on the Sage mathematical software system. It will be held at the Calit2 Center at UC San Diego and is funded by CCR La Jolla.
Date and Location
The workshop will be held Jan 2124, 2009 at Calit2.
On Jan 21, 2pm  5pm, there will be three colloquiumstyle talks aimed at a general audience:
2pm: Introduction to Sage (William Stein, Univ. of Washington, Project Founder and Director)
3pm: The "Killer Apps" in Sage: Cython, Interact, and 3d Graphics (Craig Citro, UCLA, Developer)
4pm: The Sage Community (Michael Abshoff, Dortmund, Sage Release Manager)

Though a small group will focus on discussing and implementation JeanCharles Faugere's F5 algorithm for computing Gröbner bases, by far the main goal of this workshop is fixing bugs and writing doctests, which will uncover numerous additional bugs.
