  2. Outline Scilab What is Scilab Why Scilab Scilab on Cloud

    Why On Cloud Architecture and Demo Text-Book Companion Project 2/15 OSI Days Conference Scilab on Cloud
  3. Scilab : Free and Open Source ”The Difference between Capitalism

    and Socialism, is the difference between CEO’s and Scientists, is the difference between licensed software and open source, between MATLAB and SCILAB” Licensed Softwares cripple you. To the Core! 3/15 OSI Days Conference Scilab on Cloud
  4. Scilab : A Brief Introduction Scilab history goes back to

    the ’80s when Blaise, a CACSD software was created at the IRIA as a tool for Automatic Control 4/15 OSI Days Conference Scilab on Cloud
  5. Scilab : A Brief Introduction Scilab history goes back to

    the ’80s when Blaise, a CACSD software was created at the IRIA as a tool for Automatic Control Inspired by MATLAB Fortran software Cleve Moler.Cleve later cofounded with John Little The MathWorks company 4/15 OSI Days Conference Scilab on Cloud
  6. Scilab : A Brief Introduction Scilab history goes back to

    the ’80s when Blaise, a CACSD software was created at the IRIA as a tool for Automatic Control Inspired by MATLAB Fortran software Cleve Moler.Cleve later cofounded with John Little The MathWorks company ’84 : Blaise :: Basile , distributed by first INRIA startup Simulog 4/15 OSI Days Conference Scilab on Cloud

  8. Scilab : A Brief Introduction Scilab history goes back to

    the ’80s when Blaise, a CACSD software was created at the IRIA as a tool for Automatic Control Inspired by MATLAB Fortran software Cleve Moler.Cleve later cofounded with John Little The MathWorks company ’84 : Blaise :: Basile , distributed by first INRIA startup Simulog ’90s: Simulog stopped distributing Basile . Basile is reborn as Scilab, now developed by INRIA. ’94 : INRIA decides to Open Source Scilab, puts it on public ftp as Scilab 1.1 for free download ! 4/15 OSI Days Conference Scilab on Cloud
  9. Scilab : Why Scilab ? No just a software for

    Numerical Computations ! It’s Free ! Free as in Free Beer. MATLAB would cost you some 12000 pints of beer, or maybe more ! Cross platform. Comes with simple binaries for Linux as well and one click installers for Windows/Mac, unlike MATLAB Scilab comes pre-loaded with Xcos, a Hybrid dynamic systems modeler and simulator’ equivalent to MATLAB’s Simulink/LABView No Free Lunches here ! Scilab uses LAPACK just the way MATLAB does Scilab uses some of the state of the art packages like ODEPACK and DASSL, which may not be available in MATLAB :: We don’t know because MATLAB is closed source ! 5/15 OSI Days Conference Scilab on Cloud

  28. Scilab : But Why Only Scilab ? I Scilab has

    been used successfully for several years at CNES for flight simulations ! Recently , on September 28, ARIANE 5 put one of our satellites successfully in Orbit :: This touches our emotional chord , doesn’ t it ? MATLAB costs A LOT OF MONEY ! A budding enterpreneur lost on his Idea just because, he needed a version of MATLAB with lost of permissions 8/15 OSI Days Conference Scilab on Cloud
  29. Scilab : But Why Only Scilab ? II More permissions

    on MATLAB :: More money Network licences are slow and are dependent on the network beling alive. Scilab is simple, No Licenses ! Open Source Community’s support. Stuck somewhere ? Fire up a question on Scilab mailing list, you will end up with genuine answers since the users can try out your problem without a Licensed copy of Matlab ! Dont have a toolbox ? Scilab has an API too, you can develop your own toolboxes 9/15 OSI Days Conference Scilab on Cloud
  30. Scilab On Cloud Scilab on Cloud ports Scilab to work

    directly from your browser Takes away the requirement on installing Scilab natively Simple online interface to run Scilab codes, download graphs Learn Scilab on the go , from a pool of examples 10/15 OSI Days Conference Scilab on Cloud
  31. Scilab on Cloud : The Need Enabling users with low

    end PC configuration to learn and try out Scilab Why pay hefty amounts for licenses , when the Open Source tools are equivalent and in some sense far better ? An add on to the TextBook Companion project, an IIT Bombay-MHRD flagship project aiming to port worked out examples from standard textbooks using an open source software system, such as Scilab Aim is make it easy for the users of the book to use Scilab and to improve Scilab documentation 11/15 OSI Days Conference Scilab on Cloud
  32. Architecture Web App written in Django, a Python Based Framewrok.

    Yes Open Source as well ! 12/15 OSI Days Conference Scilab on Cloud
  33. Architecture Web App written in Django, a Python Based Framewrok.

    Yes Open Source as well ! Hosted on platform provided by CDAC-Bangalore(GARUDA Cloud) 12/15 OSI Days Conference Scilab on Cloud
  34. Architecture Web App written in Django, a Python Based Framewrok.

    Yes Open Source as well ! Hosted on platform provided by CDAC-Bangalore(GARUDA Cloud) Each user has a separate login and a separate sandbox to run codes 12/15 OSI Days Conference Scilab on Cloud
  35. Architecture Web App written in Django, a Python Based Framewrok.

    Yes Open Source as well ! Hosted on platform provided by CDAC-Bangalore(GARUDA Cloud) Each user has a separate login and a separate sandbox to run codes System commands are disabled ! No malicious stuff ! 12/15 OSI Days Conference Scilab on Cloud
  36. Architecture Web App written in Django, a Python Based Framewrok.

    Yes Open Source as well ! Hosted on platform provided by CDAC-Bangalore(GARUDA Cloud) Each user has a separate login and a separate sandbox to run codes System commands are disabled ! No malicious stuff ! We are in the process of integrating it with scilab.in , and TextBook Companion Project 12/15 OSI Days Conference Scilab on Cloud
  37. So Where from here ? An easy to use, interactive

    Scilab Shell ! A good enough reason to start programming early ! Scilab on Cloud is literally cross platform. Works on phones as well ! Scilab is slowly being adapted in National Curriculum , TextBook Companion is just a push to it ! Encourage students to extend scilab, more modules, good enough reasons to stick to MATLAB Open Source is know doubt the future ! 13/15 OSI Days Conference Scilab on Cloud
