I have learnt Scilab with the help of tutorials given on the website. My friends and mentor is also supporting me when I face any issue in the coding. This tool is very useful in computations and other academic activities. I have benefited from this internship, Since I no longer need to take Educational loan to pursue my study. I want to give thanks to complete Scilab Team.

I learnt Scilab through spoken tutorials and from some other videos. I was really benefited from the internship.Qualities like handling projects on my own,effective use of forums,blog spaces are developed.Also,Easy coding and ability to link up with other codes is one significant feature in scilab that attracted me.

I got to know about Scilab through a workshop conducted by our seniors in our college, Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Roorkee. I learnt its various functions and utilities through Scilab spoken tutorials available on website. Finally, I mastered it by doing two internships. It certainly helped me in improving my coding skills and has time to time saved me from carrying out lengthy calculations that I may encounter in academics.

I came to know about Scilab by Azeotropy 2k11 fest conducted in IIT-B, and there I attended Scilab workshop and came to know about Textbook Companion Project. I got introduction to Scilab in workshop and learned Scilab from the material provided in the workshop then in the coming summer I did internship under Textbook Companion Project and coded all the solved example problems of Process Systems Analysis and Control textbook into Scilab software (as per the rules of TextBook Companion Project only solved example problems should be coded). And I benefited from this internship in knowledge wise and monetarily also and got a certificate from IITB.
