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:

  • 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
