Abstract: The Internet plays a crucial part in modern applied mathematics. New languages can spread quickly. Users learn the system and test it. New code is contributed and the language is extended. The whole effort stays opensource -- free to all and open for everyone to join and contribute. This minisymposium will show examples of successful and ongoing growth: Julia, Python, and Sage.

At the same time the Internet can teach applied mathematics: the central ideas and the details of specific applications. We all post slides and research papers. It is NOT difficult to prepare and stream video. The experience with indicates a great demand worldwide for education -- up to date materials that are free to the student. Those will start at school, here we stay at ICIAM level. Using mobile technology in education is a very important challenge.
