We introduce Magma: a computer algebra system for number theorists mainly developed at the University of Sydney, Australia, After that, we discuss advantages/disadvantages of Magma and how to contribute to make it more convenient and stronger. If time permits, we introduce some other computer algebra systems (part of them have world records) like Magma's performance and discuss how Magma should be in the next decade.
