I use Python to post process large amounts of spike data from my simulations. This post documents some observations I've made while writing my scripts.
Just some notes on different programming languages that one can use for web development. Includes Python, RoR, Rust, Erlang?
Finding the right set of parameters is quite important in a lot of research - machine learning and computational neuroscience are two fields that I know of. I recently had to ascertain the optimal parameter set for my simulations too. I came up with a quick script to do it for me.
