    MATLAB - The Language Of Technical Computing

    MATLAB (Matrix Laboratory):D is a high-level language and interactive environment that enables you to perform computationally intensive tasks faster than with traditional programming languages such as C, C++, and Fortran.

    I heard that numPy is beating Matlab

    If I were you I would only use matlab for learning purposes because I know a lot of people studying engineering with me and nobody is using Matlab in the industry.

    So you better master C C++ or another big language.

    Yeah.. I agree with you. It has been useful in the Engineering field. It is helpful in the programming of gadgets.

    I am still learning this language and I am looking forward for its capacity to be integrated in the Website development.:eek:

    IS Matlab good for people just learning programming? I've always been somewhat interested in programming but never had the motivation to learn it.

    I would say no. I would suggest C++, C#, or Java. MATLAB is really meant for upper leveling programming (engineering and what not). I used it for a couple of EE/CE projects before I switched majors. Not a bad language.

    Matlab offers an easy way of learning programming. It has a simple coding and syntaxes. You can watch several videos if you are interested.;)

    For all purposes Matlab is a engineers tool. It can do alot of the things most other scripting languages can do. But doing that is SLOOOW. The only fast thing about Matlab is it's computational libraries for mathematical functions. Those who want to learn a language for their money generating needs should pick up python or C. Matlab is the last thing you want
