Colloquium Talks

ORGANIZERS: Robert Bradshaw, William Stein and Tom Boothby

DATES: June 13-20, 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.)

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 ( 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.
