File Exchange Pick of the Week

Our best user submissions

Tell us what you want to read about!

Today, I'd like to stray from the usual format of the Pick of the Week post. This blog has been around for almost 9 years. The oldest post I found in the archives was this post back in 2004 by Doug.

The format of the posts has been mostly consistent, which is one of us selecting an entry from the File Exchange, explaining what's cool about it, and showing how it works. Around the time Brett and I (and Bob in the beginning) took over the blog from Doug and Scott, Doug started creating some videos for his posts, and that led to his new blog Doug's MATLAB Video Tutorials. Since then, Bob moved on to bigger and better things, and a number of guest posters have joined in the rotation.

Brett has created summaries of the past Pick of the Week posts (check out the links on the right), to help remind our readers of the great entries we've highlighted in the past. Brett's post asking you guys to nominate File Exchange entries was a big hit. It was great to see so many of you finding the File Exchange valuable. We also had a couple of programming challenges, this and this.

While Brett, I, and the rest of the guest bloggers love writing about our favorite entries, I do want to make this blog an interesting and stimulating read for our readers. We will continue writing the usual posts, but from time to time, we like to change it up a bit. Let us know what kind of posts you want to see. The only requirement is that it has to have something to do with the File Exchange. You can even tell us about a particular post from the past you liked and what you liked about it.

Finally, everyone loves free stuff, so the first 5 legitimate comments, i.e. suggestions for topics or improvements, will get a MathWorks swag sent their way!

Thanks, everyone, for following our blog!
