Tips for accelerating Matlab performance

I’m proud to report that MathWorks has recently posted my article “Tips for Accelerating MATLAB Performance” in their latest newsletter digest (September 2017). This article is an updated and expanded version of my post about consulting work that I did for the Crustal Dynamics Research Group at Harvard University, where I helped speed-up a complex Matlab-based GUI by a factor of 50-500 (depending on the specific feature).

Featuring an article on the official newsletter by a non-MathWorker is rare. Doing this with someone like myself who has a reputation for undocumented aspects, and a consultancy business that potentially competes with theirs, is certainly not obvious. I take this to be a sign that despite the possible drawbacks of publishing my article, MathWorks felt that it provided enough value to the Matlab user community to merit the risk. I applaud MathWorks for this, and thank them for the opportunity of being featured in their official newsletter and conferences. I do not take it for granted in the least.

The newsletter article provides multiple ideas of improving the run-time performance for file I/O and graphics. Many additional techniques for improving Matlab’s performance can be found under the Performance tag in this blog, as well as in my book “Accelerating MATLAB Performance” (CRC Press, 2014, ISBN 978-1482211290).

Next week I will present live online webinars about various ways to improve Matlab’s run-time performance:

These live webinars will be 3.5 hours long, starting at 10am EDT (7am PDT, 3pm UK, 4pm CET, 7:30pm IST, time in your local timezone), with a short break in the middle. The presentations content will be based on onsite training courses that I presented at multiple client locations (details). A recording of the webinars will be available for anyone who cannot join the live events.

 Email me if you would like additional information on the webinars or my consulting, or to inquire regarding an onsite training course.
