Did you know that you can take your existing Matlab code, compile it and turn it into a python package? Then you can distribute the packag and your first and import and run your package without having to buy a matlab license.

Matlab is the number one choice for many researchers within the scientific computing community. There many reasons for this, for example the fact that Matlab is a commercial software provides confidence that the core functionality is robust and contains few bugs.

Today we see a shift on the software side towards open source alternatives such as python. So can we take out old, robust Matlab code and integrate that into our new python library? Yes we can! And, it is possible to run that code without buying an expensive a Matlab license? Yes, that is possible! Check out my matlab_compiler repo to learn how.
