Wolfram One

In the latter part of my long service leave, restricted by social distancing rules, I decided to try the Wolfram language again.

Wolfram One looked interesting. I am entitled to student pricing so it looked like a great way to learn Mathematica and the Wolfram Language. A 15 day free trial made it even more interesting.

Wolfram One combines the web based Wolfram environment with a local desktop version for use on a computer. The “One” is a designation to indicate the convergence of Mathematica, Wolfram Alpha and web based notebooks and APIs.

To be honest I found Wolfram frustrating, but I persevered and eventually crafted a notebook version of my Domestic Violence Policy model. The notebook version can be found in my Wolfram Cloud Repository.

It was a little disappointing this published notebook requires the reader to have a Wolfram account for interaction, but Stephen Wolfram has to make money somehow or there would be no point in providing the computing resources behind the site.

I did paid for a one year subscription to Wolfram One after the free trial so I will use the time to learn the language and see what it offers.
