High-Performance Computing with R
An overview of available HPC technologies for the R language to enable faster, scalable analytics that can take advantage of multiprocessor capability will be presented in a one-day course. This will include a comprehensive overview of REvolution's recently released R packages foreach and iterators, making parallel programming easier than ever before for R programmers, as well as other available technologies such as RMPI, SNOW and many more. We will demonstrate each technology with simple examples that can be used as starting points for more sophisticated work.
Attendees should have basic familiarity with the R language—we will keep examples elementary but relevant to real-world applications.
This course will be conducted hands-on, classroom style. Computers will not be provided. Registrants are required to bring their own laptops.
