 Tourism afternoon
ORGANIZERS: Robert Bradshaw, William Stein and Tom Boothby
DATES: June 1320, 2008
LOCATION: Seattle, Washington  Mechanical Engineering 208
The goal of this "developer coding week" will be to write a huge amount of high quality code. All talks will be squarely aimed at developers and be directly related to coding projects. All participants will assumed to be experienced programmers. The main topics will be: Cython, Exact Linear Algebra, Parallel Computation, and Porting Sage to Windows. However, like with all of Sage development, participants are encouraged to work on whatever they feel will be the most productive way for them to spend their time.
Anybody can participate, but funding will be aimed primarily at people who have demonstrated a substantial ability to contribute to the Sage project. (This is not a general Sage statement  it's just for this workshop.)

 Bobby Moretti (?)
 Clement Pernet (June 1320)  exact linear algebra
 Yi Qiang  distributed Sage
 Dan Shumow (unclear)
 William Stein (June 1320)  everything, but especially exact linear algebra
 Glenn Tarbox  Dsage evolution and Twisted
 Carl Witty (June 1320)  either my proposed randgen framework (random number seed management for Sage) or cylindrical algebraic decomposition (either wrapping qepcad or writing my own implementation).
Main Topics
Cython  something much deeper than usual, and not necessarily so Sage related. Cython is one of the "killer apps" of Sage:
 expand range of Cython developers (i.e., Robert tells us how to work on Cython).
 increase documentation
 future development directions
 PEX
 pickling
MS Windows  figure out how to do a full native port of Sage to Windows. Seattle would be a good place for this theme, and I'm working on getting some Microsoft funding to support doing a port.
 visiting Microsoft and meeting the clients
 finish the cygwin part
 teach everyone how to use MSVC
Parallel computation in Sage  DSage, Ipython1, Threads again; sort of like the MSRI conference last year but much more focused on Sage and actual implementations.
Exact linear algebra  perfect to capitalize on Clement Pernet being around, and the positive momentum behind Linbox, IML, etc. There would be a number of talks on all the basic tricks of exact linear algebra, systematic benchmarking, with the goal being to "beat Magma" at a range of exact linear algebra problems.
Hotel information
I have already prepaid for a bunch of rooms at the Collegiana, so many of you can stay there: [:/roommates: Roommate list]
The Collegiana Inn 4311  12th Ave. NE Seattle, WA 98105 (206) 7323200
Back during SD2, William recommend the Seattle University Travelodge:
They have free wifi, are very conveniently located. Their rates are also reasonable. The College Inn (http://www.collegeinnseattle.com/) is also a good choice.
There are some other options here:
NOTE: UW's commencement is June 14th, so many hotels are already booked solid for the weekend and/or unusually expensive for the 13th and 14th.
