I use matlab and there are its advantages and disadvantages:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Advantages:

It lets you work in Matrices easily. It lets you do some complicated calculations quickly, without having to write a whole program or spreadsheet. Tons of add-ons and workbenches available to do a variety of tasks.

Disadvantages:

Just about everything else: horrible syntax, horrible development environment, dynamic types, not OO, a software development nightmare. It wasn't developed from a software development perspective, and it shows. Every lesson learned from the 30+ years of software development has been lost on this application, which forces users to do things that make any sensible software developer cringe
