Exposing an online interface for MATLAB (and potentially any language) I was always interested in building a small cluster with my (old) computers for my research project (just like MATLAB Distributed Server or a Hadoop cluster). While MATLAB is one of the most mature platforms for scientific computing, it's also extremely expensive, so expensive that an Ivy League college determines to exclude MATLAB Distributed Server in its academic license. Therefore we have to build some simple (and possibly dirty) alternative for the MATLAB cluster. And the first step is to expose MATLAB to the external world with some network interface. Although MATLAB is able to invoke Java's socket library to provide some sort of interop-ability, designing a communication protocol and building everything from scratch is just a waste of time. With the intuition to make the interface both machine and human friendly, we determine to build it as an HTTP site with a simple user interface.
Creativity on the Run: 18 Apps that Support the Creative Process "The intuitive mind is a sacred gift, the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift." - Albert Einstein We do not need to teach creativity, but rather inspire its daily practice. Somewhere along the way, we simply forgot to honor this innate gift and how to access its power. Our role as educators is to encourage learning experiences that increase the ability to recognize and listen to our inner voice.

R Introduction We offer here a couple of introductory tutorials on basic R concepts. It serves as background material for our main tutorial series Elementary Statistics withR. The only hardware requirement for most of the R tutorials is a PC with the latest free open source R software installed. R has extensive documentation and active online community support. It is the perfect environment to get started in statistical computing. Installation
Wolfram Programming Cloud: Introducing a Programming Revolution Combine and Conquer Because everything in the Wolfram Language is coherently built in, you can routinely combine functionality from vastly different areas, opening up a new level of programming and algorithm innovation. Insert Visualization Anywhere The Wolfram Language makes it trivial to insert aesthetically optimized static or dynamic visualization anywhere—bringing any aspect of your program to life. Leverage the World's Knowledge In the Wolfram Language, data and models from thousands of domains are built in, so your code can immediately know about and compute with real-world constructs.
