Anaconda

Anaconda is great for academic and private organizations that cannot afford more expensive Python/R package managers. Also, it is more appropriate for intermediate to advanced Python users--Anaconda can be somewhat frustrating for beginners, as it takes some practice to get comfortable with the workflow. I find it particularly useful for working in teams, because if everyone uses the same package manager, it is easier to troubleshoot issues and makes for reproducible research. For wealthier organizations, a premium package management system (with tech support) would be ideal. Anaconda is also great for people working independently on code development.

MATLAB

MATLAB is perfect for education, with all the specific and professional toolboxes that it has, is a very powerful suite to learn how to develop a workable platform.I think that is a little less appropriate in the case that you are an applications developer, where you have to make an application that has to work independently if the user has or hasn't idea how to use MATLAB.

Cons

  • Some Python packages are not included to Anaconda, so you have to install them using different ways, like using pip, for example.
  • Sometimes you get stuck because Anaconda still have some little bugs.
  • Anaconda is a little slow when it's initializing.

  • MATLAB can be used for general purpose programming, but isn't calibrated for that.
  • Individual licenses can be expensive.
  • Error messages are not always clear.

Alternatives Considered

Simple story. I tried both. Canopy felt somehow unintuitive to use.

Compared to other languages like C++ or JAVA this one is easier to learn and really comprehensive to understand. Other languages it takes time to start doing things but with MATLAB, you feel you progress pretty fast. In that sense MATLAB stacks up on their competitors. Also the power of the program in running heavy code is something that not all languages can do.
