Software Carpentry - Introduction to Matlab (Melbourne Campus)
Friday, 24 March 2017 from 9:30 am to 4:30 pm (AEDT)
A DIGITAL RESEARCH INITIATIVE - A collaboration between the Office of the DVC(R), ICT and the Library, La Trobe’s Digital Research Strategy aims to provide a world-class digital research environment to enable and accelerate new research outcomes through the engagement of researchers with advanced and emerging information and computing technologies and appropriate support services.This workshop is presented by our partners, Intersect Australia Limited.
ABOUT THE SESSION:
MATLAB is an incredibly powerful programming environment with a rich set of analysis toolkits optimized for solving engineering and scientific problems.
Built-in graphics make it easy to visualize and gain insights from data and a vast library of prebuilt toolboxes lets you get started right away with algorithms essential to your domain.
MATLAB helps you take your ideas beyond the desktop. You can run your analyses on larger data sets and scale up to clusters and clouds. If you are just getting started with MATLAB and, more generally, with programming come along to this hands-on, face-to-face training session. You will learn how to write programs that produce results, using the researcher-focused training modules from the highly regarded Software Carpentry Foundation (software-carpentry.org).
● 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.
