On May 23rd we organized our first basic introduction to MATLAB.
The attendees got an overview of what MATLAB is, got familiar with the interface and the functionalities, learnt how to perform basic calculations but also how to create their own functions and to plot results.
RSG Luxembourg thanks the lecturer, Dr. Andras Hartmann from LCSB, and all the attendees.
The constant interest of RSG members and of colleagues, students and support staff in the events we organize, is inspiring us to keep up our work, so THANK YOU!
