Object-Oriented MATLAB Programming


Course Number: MTLB-106

Duration: 1 day (6.5 hours)

Format: Live, hands-on

MATLAB Programming Training Overview

This Object-Oriented MATLAB Programming training course teaches students how to create high-quality, maintainable MATLAB programs using the modern object-oriented programming paradigm, replacing the “spaghetti code” too commonly found in beginner-level MATLAB scripts. Students are led from object-oriented design basics to advanced features such as access attributes, encapsulation, property value validations, getter and setter methods, event notification and handling, backward compatibility across MATLAB releases, and run-time performance considerations.

Note: This course can be condensed to a half-day with fewer examples and less hands-on practice. We strongly recommend the full-day version if possible.

Location and Pricing

This course is taught as a private, live online class for teams of 3 or more. All our courses are hands-on, instructor-led, and tailored to fit your group’s goals and needs. Most Accelebrate classes can be flexibly scheduled for your group, including delivery in half-day segments across a week or set of weeks. To receive a customized proposal and price quote for online corporate training, please contact us.

Objectives

  • Master the fundamentals of object-oriented coding
  • Write MATLAB classes
  • Customize MATLAB class blocks using attributes
  • Understand the differences between, and uses of, handle and value classes
  • Write reusable, maintainable MATLAB classes
  • Use class inheritance to override objects’ functionality and behavior
  • Use class constructs to notify run-time events to subscribed callback listeners
  • Use property validators and accessor methods
  • Explore MATLAB's hidden object-oriented features
  • Understand MATLAB release compatibility and run-time performance tradeoffs

Prerequisites

Attendees should have taken Accelebrate's From MATLAB Scripts to Complete Programs course or have equivalent knowledge. Students should already be comfortable using the MATLAB environment and have some basic programming experience. No prior object-oriented experience is assumed or required for this course. However, familiarity with object-oriented constructs in other programming environments (e.g., C#, C++, Java, or Python) would be helpful.
