Git Tutorial

April 26, 2009

So I was browsing the Google Open Source Blog, when I found a link to this Git Tutorial.  I wish I had found this a month ago when I started learning Git.  SymPy only has a very basic tutorial for Git.  Their main tutorial is still written for Mercurial, which they used until recently.

Anyway, I have been reading the tutorial, and so far it is awesome, so I thought it would make a good post here.


First Post!

Well, I got accepted into the Google Summer of Code program for 2009. I will be working on SymPy, a computer algebra system written and run in Python. I will be working on building an ordinary differential equation engine for it, as its present capabilities are very limited. You can look at my application abstract. SymPy requires that I blog about my work at least once a week, so here it is. More will be posted here later.

Originally I started this blog on blogger, but I think WordPress will be a little better.  Namely, it seems to support plugins, so I can insert LaTeX code much easier. It would seem that only blogs not hosted at support plugins.
So I think I will  just use LaTeXiT and do it manually.  Oh well.  Anyway, here is the Divergence Theorem, which nicely shows both mathematical beauty and LaTeX beauty.divergence-theorem
