Hi everyone,

Just to confirm that we do have a speaker for tonight: Paul Leopardi:

Paul Leopardi has recently attended Sage Days 10 in Nancy
( http://wiki.sagemath.org/days10 ) and will speak on:
o a very brief intoduction to Sage and its development model;
o the experience of attending Sage Days 10, which consisted of 3 days of
lectures followed by 3 days of coding sprints;
o a very brief introduction to the use of Cython to wrap C++ libraries;
o a brief demo of a Cython wrapper for the GluCat ( http://glucat.sf.net )
library running in ipython and in Sage.

Sage ( http://www.sagemath.org/ ) is a mathematics software package developed
by a worldwide community of developers.
~   1 a distribution of the best free, open-source mathematics software
~     available that is easy to compile or install from binaries.
~   2 an interface to most free and commercial mathematics software packages
~     (e.g. Magma, Mathematica)
~   3 a huge new library, which uniformly covers the widest area of
~     functionality, including several new implementations not yet found
~     elsewhere.

Hope to see you there,

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
