MathWorks Promotes MATLAB for Dummies

I was incredibly pleased to receive an e-mail the other day stating that MathWorks, the makers of MATLAB, had placed a link for MATLAB for Dummies on their site. I’m always thrilled to receive that sort of recognition and I really appreciate the vendor doing it for me. MathWorks was especially helpful during the writing of the book and I thank everyone involved for their support.

Products such as MATLAB are becoming ever more important as people ask for consumer products with more and more capability, and also want smart devices with which to interact. Of course, MATLAB is used for all sorts of technical, scientific, and medical work. However, the place where most people are likely to see the effect of MATLAB is in the improved devices offered at the store, as part of appliances, and within vehicles.

I also see MATLAB as an important tool to help continue the fight to provide better accessibility aids. At some point in everyone’s life, accessibility aids become essential. If nothing else, getting older means having to use accessibility aids to continue being independent. The sooner we come up with truly effective accessibility aids, the better for everyone.

No matter how you use MATLAB, it’s a great tool for performing a wide range of tasks that require heavy duty math. Yes, you could possibly use it for simple math tasks too, but what would be the fun of that. Thanks again to the MathWorks folks for their support of my book. I really do appreciate it!
