Sage/GAP Days 85 --- March 13-17, 2017, Cernay

Sage developers days on packaging, portability, documentation tools

Cernay-la-Ville, Yvelines (40km South-West of Paris, near Orsay, France)


In 2016, we ran a one-week long Sage developers days in a cosy guest house in Cernay, just short of an hour from Paris by public transport, on *packaging, portability, and documentation tools for Sage*. It was fun and productive and we are organizing a follow up: same location, same themes. In addition, the workshop will host a GAP coding sprint, and we are looking forward collaboration opportunities.

If you are interested in participating, please fill/edit the poll with the dates you would be coming, and fill in the participants list. See below for the cooking organization.



The workshop is funded by OpenDreamKit, with material help from the Laboratoire de Recherche en Informatique, the Mathematics and the Computer Science Departments at Université Paris-Sud, Orsay. Accommodation and meals for all participants are covered by our funding sources. OpenDreamKit participants should cover their travel expenses. We could fund the travel of some developers with specific skills and experience on the themes of the workshop. Please get in touch!
