Event description

Description

  • Cost: Free to Researchers and PhD students at the University of Sydney.

  • The venue is not fitted with desktop PCs. You must bring your own laptop to this course.

  • Proudly presented in association with Sydney Informatics.


Why do this course?

MATLAB is an incredibly powerful programming environment with a rich set of analysis toolkits. But what if you're just getting started – with MATLAB and, more generally, with programming?

Nothing beats a hands-on, face-to-face training session to get you past the inevitable syntax errors!

So join us for this live coding workshop where we write programs that produce results, using the researcher-focused training modules from the highly regarded Software Carpentry Foundation (software-carpentry.org).

You’ll learn how to:

  • Programming concepts and techniques.
  • Basic syntax, control structures and data types in MATLAB.
  • How to load external data into MATLAB.
  • Ways to visualise data.
  • Defensive programming techniques for avoiding errors.

The Intersect approach to training

At Intersect, we work closely with our member universities to develop and deliver training that targets the day-to-day software and technology problems that researchers face. We deliver hands-on courses in a relaxed setting with knowledgeable, helpful trainers who are themselves researchers and who know how researchers work.
