Anti-matlabist, pro-python grad student at Caltech. I'm here on SE to learn useful bits of programming and workflow design (e.g. version control) that can be applied to science, and also to help others when able.
I dabble in Python, R, latex/bibtex/tikz, elisp and scheme, and matlab (when forced).
If you work in an academic setting, please help educate people about free software alternatives to the bloated behemoth that is MATLAB.
