LaTeX is quite popular in scientific writing. I use it from day to day for my papers and dissertation. With LaTeX, you can focus on the content without bothering the format. Especially, PDF files are much more convenient to share than DOC files. Here is a straight-forward guide to configure your LaTeX on Mac.
A good habit of name conventions is important for the code readability. It is especially important when you share the code among a group of people. In this blog, I will conclude some naming conventions for MATLAB, which are also applicable for other programming languages like Python.
Naming conventions are not that strict but there are some common rules which you should follow. And those are the things listed here.
On of the most important thing is to set a unit suffix for your dimensional variables, like attackAngleDEG, or shipSpeedMS. Normally, I would use all capital characters for the units.
I am quite new to Git. I just would like to have something simple to control my configuration files, and paper drafts. And I think Git is the perfect thing to apply. It might be a little bit painful to learn, but you will be paid back. When I started, I searched a lot for what I should do. So, after a while, I put some notes here as Git for beginners. Hopefully, it can help you to learn Git more quickly and get rid of the annoying lost of control in your files.
