UCLA and LA RUG talks on R and C++ integration
We spent last week in the LA area and had a generally good time out west. I
was able to sneak in two talks and a group discussion, thanks to the help by
Jan de Leeuw (and everybody at UCLA's Stats department) as well as by Szilard
Pafka representing the LA R User's Group. Pdf files for the slides for the talks
are now on my presentations
page in both a compact handout
and presentation slide
(where the content is identical; if in doubt use the first file).
The talks centered around R and C++ integration using both Rcpp and RInside and
summarise where both projects stand after all the recent work Romain and I put in over
the last few months. The presentations went fairly well; I received some
Szilard and the R User Group had also suggested a group discussion about CRAN, its growth and how to maximise
its usefulness. Given my CRANberries feed,
my work on the CRAN Task Views for Empirical Finance and High-Performance
Computing with R as well as our cran2deb binary package
generator, I had some views and ideas that helped frame the discussion which
turned out to very useful and informed. So maybe we should do this User
Group thing in Chicago too!
Special thanks to Jan de Leeuw and Szilard Pafka for organising the meeting,
talks and discussion.
