Introduction to Programming - Octave/MATLAB

Friday February 15, 2013: 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm -- Downtown Library: Training Center

GNU Octave (an open-source alternative to MATLAB) is a high-level programming language with extensive capabilities for data manipulation and visualization. Learn how to write computer programs using Octave and learn about statements, variables, functions, control-flow structures and fundamental programming concepts, as well as how to work with matrices and visualizing big data sets.

This class is designed for individuals with strong intermediate computer skills. It is suggested that students prepare by having basic command line knowledge or attending the Feb. 8 class, Introduction to Linux And The Command Line.

An additional workshop on related programming will be offered at the same time and location on Friday February 22. You are welcome to attend all three workshops - but it is not a requirement for participation.
