Since my job as a software engineer is to take the algorithms produced from the "MATLAB guys" and turn them into something that will run on a microprocessor, I must be aware of MATLAB to some degree. I consider myself fairly skillful with computer languages, but learning MATLAB has been similar to learning Mozart. Sure there are familiar things to latch onto, but the underlying way of thinking is very different.
I never took a class which used MATLAB, but I want to pick it up with a minimal amount of painfulness. There are times in which I have to dive deeply into MATLAB hackers' code, and the more I can do on my own the better. I have a few MATLAB books in my office, but I find that online references seem to serve me better. For that reason I am adding a MATLAB section to my programming languages page.
Here are some useful links I have found when dealing with MATLAB
Now for a few random notes on things I have picked up while working in the MATLAB world.
Anything I left out? Any useful MATLAB learning tools you have to share? Please add them in the comments. I, for one, welcome our new MATLAB overlords.
