Hello everyone,

For my master thesis, I have to re-evaluate one publication. It is a prediction problem. I have quite complex distribution model, MCMC needed and posterior predictive checking to fit the model.

Since as an electrical&electronics engineering graduate and doing master in telecommunication, I do not have an expertise statistics related softwares. After my research, I believe Stan answering my problem requirements. But how convenient to start the project in MATLAB? Or should I start with Python, R, etcâ€¦ I look forward to your advices! Thanks in advance!
