Below you will find the schedule of our “Introduction to Matlab” lectures, held at the CBSU on Tuesdays, 14.00, between November 6 and December 11. Matlab is the Swiss Army Knife of data analysis: no matter whether you are analysing neuroimaging data, behavioural data or your latest bank statements, Matlab can make you do things you thought were never possible. = Introduction to Scientific Computing at the CBU =

This time, lectures will be combined with hands-on sessions in the computer users room at the CBSU. The details will be confirmed later. Space in the computer users room is limited, so it would be good if we had an idea of how many people we may have to accommodate. If you are interested, please drop me a line. Any larger data analysis at the CBU, especially for neuroimaging data, is performed on our high-performance [[http://intranet.mrc-cbu.cam.ac.uk/computing/|computer cluster]], using the operating system Linux. Some of our workshops will cover the basics of our computing system, good research practice in scientific computing, basic linux commands and an introduction to parallel computing.

Our lectures are aimed at researchers with no or little prior experience to programming (in Matlab or otherwise). We are not intending to provide a full Matlab course, but we hope we can significantly facilitate the first few steps. For other options, see e.g. opportunities at Cambridge University (http://training.cam.ac.uk/ucs/), or on-line tutorials (http://imaging.mrc-cbu.cam.ac.uk/meg/Beginners).

Please note that the first lecture by Russell will be on general computing issues, and is not specific to Matlab. Individual sessions of this workshop series will be advertised via our "skillstraining" mailing list (see below).

Introduction to Scientific Computing at the CBU

Below you will find the schedule of our “Introduction to Scientific Computing at the CBU” workshops, which will be held online for new members of the CBU in November 2020.

Any larger data analysis at the CBU, especially for neuroimaging data, is performed on our high-performance computer cluster, using the operating system Linux. Some of our workshops will cover the basics of our computing system, good research practice in scientific computing, basic linux commands and an introduction to parallel computing.

Our workshops are aimed at researchers with no or little prior experience to programming. We are not intending to provide a full Linux course, but we hope we can significantly facilitate the first few steps.
