Sage TA

I have been hired by the college of Arts and Sciences, at the University of Washington, to work on and help people with Sage. This is the first position of this kind, so I don't know what to expect. My plan is to hold some office hours in the Sage lab, and help with getting releases out.

Title: Arts & Sciences Mathematical Computing GSA

Description: This position will be focused on providing support for computing-based research across the campus. The GSA will hold office hours where the focus will be on assisting undergraduate and graduate students, researchers and faculty from all areas of the sciences and engineering with the use of software designed for mathematical computation. In particular, the GSA will assist with the development and implementation of Sage, which is an open source mathematical software development project sponsored by the University of Washington. The TA will also devote time to answering email queries in this area.
