Introduction to Programming with Matlab


Recommended Posts

So for a few years I've noticed there was a program called Matlab which was used in data analysis, but I always kind of shied away from it because well its programming.  I seen it offered free though (a 9 week program) which only takes up a few minutes (literally many videos are broken down into 5-20 minute segments) and I can cover two weeks in about 2 hours.

 

Since I started a temp job, and we were experiencing some issues with excel, I figured that maybe finding out more about programming might be useful in the future.  

 

I find that I spend a lot of time on non-instructional things (blabbing here mostly) and I was thinking instead of yapping, maybe I could learn something which takes up very little time and is free.

 

It's a slick little program that so far I've learned how to do some simple commands which will do math for me!

 

Like calculating how many seconds it takes for the light of the moon to reach the earth (its 1.28 seconds) in case you were wondering.  

 

Just another bit of a disclaimer:  Namely so I don't get some person writing and saying 'why are you writing this' its because this is a general discussion and everyday chit chat thread and I can't be the only person on the planet who might enjoy learning such stuff.

Hi Sharon,

 

I found this info, I had never heard of this before, sounds interesting.

There is also a Free Trial

 

 

Explore new ideas

MATLAB® is the high-level language and interactive environment used by millions of engineers and scientists worldwide. It lets you explore and visualize ideas and collaborate across disciplines including signal and image processing, communications, control systems, and computational finance.

Put your ideas into action

You can use MATLAB in projects such as modeling energy consumption to build smart power grids, developing control algorithms for hypersonic vehicles, analyzing weather data to visualize the track and intensity of hurricanes, and running millions of simulations to pinpoint optimal dosing for antibiotics.

 

There are many ways to start using MATLAB and Simulink products. Download a free trial

My Excel issues are that I don't excel at it at all! (haha) Actually I'm just teaching myself how to use it because I notice it's pretty much in every job description. I'm sure Sharon is well versed in it already and is probably dealing with internal issues of things she'd like to see the program do that it won't.

Lol :)

actually Excell does a lot more than most people think it does. One of the most advanced app around and the best Microsoft produced. And without any competition whatsoever ;)

I love excel but Im using it for data analysis, and compiling 5 large spreadsheets into one. Its glitchy at times, and corrupts at other times (this being said I actually think these are as a result of our server not being able to hold the volume of users using it).

I also have data from 300 trials with 30 devices each, and so forth which might be interesting to plot....
