SAGE: Open source Maths server online

In month of June, 2012, I went to Jalgao, Maharashtra, India for short term teachers program (STTP) to speak on Scilab ( and SAGE.

Installation of Scilab is easy and it was installed correctly so we did not had any problem for that session. Some of the participants were did very well. Scilab is basically for numerical computations and many toolboxes are available in scilab. Ideal for Engineering students.

At the time of SAGE, found that on many machines either it was not installed completely or taking lot of time to get open as installed on virtual box.

I wanted to start the session. I checked on online site. Since college had good internet speed, we started to work on online sage.

Around 40 participants worked at a time and we had the session on SAGE with out problem for 2 hours. Thanks to SAGE online service.







Lucknow Workshop

I went to Lucknow University for workshop on LaTeX and Scilab.
It was faculty training program. Participants are from North India.
They were very enthusiastic about learning, understanding and implementing Scilab.

The workshop took place in month of November, 2011.
As I heard, such type of workshop was arranged for the first time at that place.

We should conduct more workshops in northern part of India.
