Keeping a certain tutorial up to date has proven infeasible. Two main problems are:
- Different teachers/tutors have different styles, and thus have difficulties upgrading someone else’s tutorial.
- Different tutorials cover different parts of the material, and so the upgrade of “the” standard tutorial always was inconsistent between its different pieces.
We are now aiming for the following:
- The standard intro reference is “The Book”.
- TU Berlin teaches a MATSim class during every summer term.
We plan to move the tutorial material of that class to the site here at the end of each term (i.e. around July/August of every year). The most current version is the 2020 course.
Additional material is available under matsim.org/javadoc –> main distribution –> tutorials.
That material may be a bit more difficult to find or read, but it has the advantage that it is inside the code repository and thus always compiling and in many cases even secured by a regression test.
