F# vs MATLAB: What are the differences?

F#: Strongly-typed, functional-first programming language for writing simple code to solve complex problems. F# is a mature, open source, cross-platform, functional-first programming language. It empowers users and organizations to tackle complex computing problems with simple, maintainable and robust code; MATLAB: A high-level language and interactive environment for numerical computation, visualization, and programming. Using MATLAB, you can analyze data, develop algorithms, and create models and applications. The language, tools, and built-in math functions enable you to explore multiple approaches and reach a solution faster than with spreadsheets or traditional programming languages, such as C/C++ or Java.

F# and MATLAB can be categorized as "Languages" tools.

"Pattern-matching" is the primary reason why developers consider F# over the competitors, whereas "Simulink" was stated as the key factor in picking MATLAB.

F# is an open source tool with 2.09K GitHub stars and 341 GitHub forks. Here's a link to F#'s open source repository on GitHub.

Empatica, Wham City Lights, and Walter are some of the popular companies that use MATLAB, whereas F# is used by Olo, Huddle, and Property With Potential. MATLAB has a broader approval, being mentioned in 12 company stacks & 23 developers stacks; compared to F#, which is listed in 19 company stacks and 16 developer stacks.

    JavaScript
    JavaScript is most known as the scripting language for Web pages, but used in many non-browser environments as well such as node.js or Apache CouchDB. It is a prototype-based, multi-paradigm scripting language that is dynamic,and supports object-oriented, imperative, and functional programming styles.
    PHP
    Fast, flexible and pragmatic, PHP powers everything from your blog to the most popular websites in the world.
    Python
    Python is a general purpose programming language created by Guido Van Rossum. Python is most praised for its elegant syntax and readable code, if you are just beginning your programming career python suits you best.
    HTML5
    HTML5 is a core technology markup language of the Internet used for structuring and presenting content for the World Wide Web. As of October 2014 this is the final and complete fifth revision of the HTML standard of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). The previous version, HTML 4, was standardised in 1997.
    Java
    Java is a programming language and computing platform first released by Sun Microsystems in 1995. There are lots of applications and websites that will not work unless you have Java installed, and more are created every day. Java is fast, secure, and reliable. From laptops to datacenters, game consoles to scientific supercomputers, cell phones to the Internet, Java is everywhere!
