This workshop will offer beginners a hands-on introduction to MATLAB, one of the most popular data analysis and programming tools used in academic and professional settings. We will start with an introduction to the overall platform and environment, look at how data is handled/displayed and then present the GUI (graphical user interface) and basic programming syntax.
In hands-on exercises, participants will upload files, manipulate simple example data sets, write script, use some MATLAB functions, and create figures. Attendees can apply the coding concepts toward a variety of programming languages after the workshop.
Previous coding experience is not required. We recommend bringing fully charged laptops, with MatLab already installed. Laptops will be available for attendees who need to borrow one. If you would prefer to attend online, email email@example.com for connection information.
