Description

This workshop features numerous hands on introductory tutorials about Sage, and the interface between Sage and Macaulay2. There were discussions and talks about doing algebraic geometry with both Sage and Macaulay2, and the unique advantages of both systems. There were also talks about working with lattice polytopes and doing Lie theory in Sage. In addition to the talks and tutorials, we had numerous coding sprints.
