Professor William Stein has taught courses involving open-source software in mathematics departments at Berkeley, Harvard, and University of Washington for more than 15 years. He spent the last four years building the web application cloud.sagemath.com, which makes using open-source software in teaching much easier, safer, and more fun. He’ll talk about how he built cloud.sagemath.com and how to use it to improve classes.
