In the last post, Wendy Fullam told us about MATLAB Examples, where you could see working examples and pick apart the code to see how they worked. But suppose you wanted more? Suppose you wanted an environment that could teach you, step by step, how to get started coding in MATLAB? If that’s the case, then Chaitanya Chitale has just what you need. Chaitanya is a MATLAB Training Content Developer at MathWorks.
