Mathematica Development using Wolfram Workbench (free)

course objective

This course provides an introduction to developing Mathematica projects using Wolfram Workbench.

target audience

This course was written for people interested in creating Mathematica code using the tools available in Wolfram Workbench, a state-of-the-art integrated development environment.

delivery type

Courses are delivered as instructor-led classes in computer classroom facilities. Course topics are presented with alternating sessions of lectures and exercises. Additional online training information is available. All classes feature low student-teacher ratios.


  • Wolfram Workbench IDE (Integrated Development Environment)
    An introduction to the core concepts at the heart of the Workbench interface
  • Working with Mathematica Projects
    A detailed look at all of the features provided for creating and editing Mathematica code from within Workbench
  • Debugging, Testing, and Profiling
    An in-depth look at how to debug Mathematica code, how to build and use test suites as part of the development process, and how to profile code

course materials

Each attendee will be provided with Mathematica course notebooks and access to the current version of Mathematica. The course notebooks require Mathematica or Wolfram CDF Player. Printed course materials can be requested one month prior to the course. These are not free of charge. A computer running Mathematica is available for your use during class. A temporary Mathematica training license is provided upon request.


Course attendees are expected to have basic familiarity with Mathematica, especially package creation.
