Why migrate from MATLAB to Python?
Python has a lot of momentum. Many high profile projects use it and more are migrating to it all the time. Why? One reason is that Python is free, but more importantly, it is because Python has a thriving ecosystem of packages that allow developers to work faster and more efficiently. They can go from prototyping to production to scale on hardware ranging from a Raspberry Pi (or maybe micro controller) to a cluster, all using the same language. A large part of Python’s growth is driven by its excellent support for work in the fields of science, engineering, machine learning, and data science.
You and your organization might be thinking about migrating from MATLAB to Python to get access to the ecosystem and increase your productivity, but you might also have some outstanding questions and concerns, such as: How do I get started? Will any of my knowledge transfer? How different are Python and MATLAB? How long will it take me to become proficient? Is it too big a of a shift? Can I transition gradually or do I have to do it all at once? These are all excellent questions.
We know people put a lot of thought into the tools they select and that changing platforms is a big deal. We created this webinar to help you make the right choice.
What: A guided walkthrough and Q&A about how to migrate from MATLAB® to Python with Enthought Lead Instructor, Dr. Alexandre Chabot-Leclerc.
Who Should Watch: MATLAB® users who are considering migrating to Python, either partially or completely.
In this webinar, we’ll give you the key information and insight you need to quickly evaluate whether Python is the right choice for you, your team, and your organization, including:
- How to get started
- What you need in order to replicate the MATLAB experience
- Important conceptual differences between MATLAB and Python
- Important similarities between MATLAB and Python: What MATLAB knowledge will transfer
- Strategies for converting existing MATLAB code to Python
- How to accelerate your transition
Presenter: Alexandre Chabot-Leclerc, Ph.D., Vice President, Digital Transformation

Python for Scientists & Engineers Training: The Quick Start Approach to Turbocharging Your Work
If you are tired of running repeatable processes manually and want to (semi-) automate them to increase your throughput and decrease pilot error, or you want to spend less time debugging code and more time writing clean code in the first place, or you are simply tired of using a multitude of tools and languages for different parts of a task and want to replace them with one comprehensive language, then Enthought’s Python for Scientists and Engineers is definitely for you!
This class has been particularly appealing to people who have been using other tools like MATLAB or even Excel for their computational work and want to start applying their skills using the Python toolset.
One reason for its broad popularity is its efficiency and ease-of-use. Many people consider Python more fun to work in than other languages (and we agree!). Another reason for its popularity among scientists, engineers, and analysts in particular is Python’s support for rapid application development and extensive (and growing) open source library of powerful tools for preparing, visualizing, analyzing, and modeling data as well as simulation.
Python is also an extraordinarily comprehensive toolset – it supports everything from interactive analysis to automation to software engineering to web app development within a single language and plays very well with other languages like C/C++ or FORTRAN so you can continue leveraging your existing code libraries written in those other languages.
Many organizations are moving to Python so they can consolidate all of their technical work streams under a single comprehensive toolset. In the first part of this class we’ll give you the fundamentals you need to switch from another language to Python and then we cover the core tools that will enable you to do in Python what you were doing with other tools, only faster and better!
