MATLAB and Python in Jupyter Notebooks and Live Scripts

Thursday, January 11, 2024 at 10:30am to 1:30pm

Building 3, 133
33 MASSACHUSETTS AVE, Cambridge, MA 02139

Session Time: 10:30am – 12:00pm EST, followed by TA hours - 12:00pm to 1:30pm

Computational notebooks have revolutionized the way we work, enabling us to seamlessly combine code, visualizations, and documentation in a single interactive environment. This workshop will provide you with a comprehensive understanding of how to leverage the full potential of MATLAB and Python using two amazing options for computational notebooks: MATLAB Live Scripts and Jupyter Notebooks. With hands-on exercises you will have the opportunity to use the MATLAB kernel in Jupyter, as well as practice some basic MATLAB and Python workflows, which will empower you to supercharge your data analysis, modeling, and visualization workflows.

Attendees must bring their own laptops.  Please also have access to MATLAB and your GitHub account set up.  The speaker will host TA hours after the talk, to address inquiries related to your research and projects.
