SAGE: open source mathematics software with python scripting

It’s possible (with fingers etc. crossed) that by the end of the year my job will have altered somewhat and I’ll be spending some of my time, amongst other things, doing the kinds of things one generally uses Mathematica and Matlab for. This would be a departure, but no doubt an interesting one.

And what should come steaming over the horizon into my view at this moment? Ah look, it’s SAGE, “Open Source Mathematics Software” in exactly that flavour, with scripting in Python. Maybe it’s half-baked rubbish, maybe it’s slick and up to the job; maybe I’ll never know. Maybe, just maybe, I’ll be checking it out by the end of the year. For now: noted.

    Being open source software, at least if it turns out to be half-baked rubbish you can bake the other half ;)

    Hmm, how long till we see a trademark C&D from a certain payroll software company?
