This is a basic course on creating apps in MATLAB using its graphical user interface utility called App Designer. The App Designer is next generation, i.e., future of designing apps in MATLAB. The App Designer contains many new design components that are absent in the conventional app designing tool called GUIDE. The course is designed so that a person with the basic knowledge of MATLAB is able to transform his code to a beautiful User Interface and app.
The motivation for the course, i.e., why should take it, is my observation that students and people put alot of effort in writing the code but little on its appearance. By learning this course, you will easily transform your code into a well understood piece of software that the users will find useful to interact with. All you need is motivation to learn and basic understanding of MATLAB such as variables, matrices and others. The course contains 1+ hours of recorded lectures. Every lecture contains a demonstration of the concepts and the codes are included with the course.
The following are the outlines of the course
Segment 1: Basics of App Designer
Segment 2: Tips and Tricks for Effective use of App Designer
Segment 3: Coding GUI's
Segment 4: Advance Techniques
Segment 5: Sample Projects with App Designer
What are the requirements?
We will start from the very beginning in this course. Although i will try to focus on very basic constructs however, i will expect some Know-how of using MATLAB such as variables, matrices and some commonly used operations on the variables. Moreover, you should be familiar with the working environment of the MATLAB and should know what is command line and what is .m file etc. I am also expecting that you should have already installed Matlab Software R2016a or R2016b. Please visit mathworks official website for a free trial of the software. Majority of the Universities offer a free student version of the software, so if you are a student, contact your university for availability. You can purchase the student version directly from Mathworks. Please note that i am using its R2016a version.
What am I going to get from this course?
You should be able to work with graphical user interface controls such as text boxes, buttons, check boxes and others to make gui for your code.
At the end of the course you be a confident user of the matlab utility called App Designer for making GUI for your programs.
You will be able to ask any question. I will answer it ASAP.
You will be able to create your GUI's. If you have any problem I will help you.
You will get complete source codes of lectures.
Regular course updates: new lectures, applications and documents.
Develop beginer to advance level skills of Programming with MATLAB
Create a portfolio of Many MATLAB projects to apply for MATLAB jobs
Gain Hands-On experience with MATLAB for visualizing, analyzing and formulating intermediate and some advanced level problems using MATLAB programming skills
Experience some real world applications of MATLAB in solving problems
Be able to use MATLAB for data science and machine learning
Build GUIs and Desktop applications with MATLAB
Build power regexes and use them to identify patterns in the input text
We cover everything from scratch and therefore do not require any prior knowledge of MATLAB
The installation of MATLAB software on your machine is a must for this course so that you are able to run the commands and scripts that we cover during the course. If you do not have the MATLAB software installed than you may consider the following options
1. You may download a free trail copy of the software from the MATHWORK website. This is for limited time use
2. If you are student or employee, you may contact your School or employer for a free copy. Many universities offer a free student version of the software
3. You may consider downloading the Octave which is a free and has nearly identical functionality as that of MATLAB. (I would not recommend this option since you may not be able to have access to all the functions that we cover in this course)
4. If none of the above works for you, then you may purchase the student version directly from Mathworks website which is significantly lower in cost compare to its full version
