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".  This is not yet completely finished, but see here.
  • TU Berlin teaches a MATSim class during every summer term.  We now have the 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 2015 course.

Additional material is available under --> 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.
