Sage Days 11 in Austin Texas is tomorrow

I'm in Seattle, it's 6pm, and Sage Days 11 is in Austin, Texas tomorrow. I'm very excited, and I'm flying there over night. On the one hand, a red eye might make me "totally exhausted" for the conference tomorrow. On the other hand, I slept an average of 2-3 hours per night for a week during Sage Days 8 last time I was in Austin, and I'm reasonably caught up on sleep.

My main goal for the workshop is to continue work of Tim Dokchitser and Jennifer Balakrishnan to create a native implementation of Dokchiter's algorithm for computing L(f,s). Having this is suddenly incredibly important to my number theory research, so I'm finally motivated to want to get it into Sage.

I'll post about the workshop in my blog here.
