Over this summer I am participating in Google Summer of Code 2017 (GSOC).This will be my second , and sadly final, time participating in GSOC. (The funding so nice you can only get it twice! Plus, I'd have to still be a student and lucky for me I just graduated with my M.A. in mathematics from Saint Louis University!) I will again be coding for SAGE Mathematical Software System, an open source database. An open source database is made up of code available for public use and modification.

What I love about programing is it is akin to solving a logic puzzle. You have all the pieces you need to solve it, you're allowed to search the internet for assistance, but the internet will not give you the answer, you still have to find it on you own. If you have misread one letter or decoded one word wrong, you will not find the answer. You can spend twice as much time trying to solve the problem than actually solving the puzzle. That is why in coding, as with logic puzzles, GSOC 2016 Lauren Miller 05/21/2016
