Posted by Doug Hull,

This video is a follow on to last week’s. Instead of making a line with different colored markers in MATLAB, we will be making a multi-color line in MATLAB. This is actually stretchig the truth a little since lines have exactly one color in MATLAB. What we really... read more >>

Bad coding practices to avoid

I was revisiting older posts, and this is one of my most frequently referenced posts. I teach the MATLAB 101 class to every new hire at MathWorks. Inevitably, someone will ask me how to make a global variable. I then Google up: “How to make MATLAB Doug Cry” and... read more >>

Vectorizing code in MATLAB

Posted by Doug Hull,

When you vectorize code, you avoid looping through an array and instead do operations on the matrix level. This avoids for loops in MATLAB. The reason for vectorizing are often stylistic. Vectorizing is preferred because it can make your code shorter, easier to read and maintain. This... read more >>
