Why Don’t We List All-Time Downloads?

Posted by Ned Gulley,

In the last few weeks, Sean and Jiro have done some nice posts about File Exchange activity over the years. Sean wrote about top files and authors and then Jiro followed up with most active entries. Jiro’s post reminds me of one I did three years ago on File Exchange... read more >>

I am John Kelly, the Administrator of MATLAB Central.  As part of the MATLAB Central 15th Anniversary Celebration we thought it would be interesting to have a series of interviews with key contributors to MATLAB Central.  Naturally we thought 15 questions seemed appropriate.

We did some web updates last night, and Cody emerged with a fresh coat of paint. As a result it’s more mobile-friendly. The tags for each problem are a little more prominent on the right side. But I especially want to call your attention to the fact that code regions now feature... read more >>

Getting By With a Little Help 2

Posted by Ned Gulley,

Let’s say you’ve written some code that you think might worth adding to the File Exchange. But then you hesitate. Your Tiddlywinks Trajectory Simulator function (TiddleSim.m) is nifty. It’ll definitely be the first of its kind on the site. But you ask yourself: Should I really put this on the... read more >>

Numerical Analyst John D’Errico Takes a Stroll Through Cody 14

Posted by Ned Gulley,

I think of the wise and generous John D’Errico as a computational philanthropist. After a long career as a numerical analyst at Kodak, he retired to what could have been complacent indifference to the outside world. But that’s not the kind of man that John D’Errico is. He wanted to... read more >>

File Exchange Alert: Your Help Is Needed! 2

Posted by Ned Gulley,

Collaboration on software can be a lot of fun, but it can also be hard to motivate. For instance, you may be working on a project and you'd love some help, but you can't get anyone else excited about your Interactive Polhode-Herpolhode Animator. Alternatively, you may be willing to help with somebody else's project, but how do you find something that's interesting to you and simultaneously needs and wants your help? Because if you're going to spend time hacking code, you want to make sure somebody actually cares.... read more >>
