useR 2009 in Rennes: Recap and slides
I spent most of last week in Rennes, the capital of Brittany in France,
as it was time for UseR! 2009
the annual R conference. Francois Husson, Aline Legrand and others at the
Agrocampus Ouest had put together a really well-run conference, and it was a
pleasure to reconnect with so many people. It was also pretty nice to walk
around town and see bits and pieces of the Tombees de la nuit
which happened at the same time.
As last year (and again at the BoC in December), I presented a three-hour
tutorial on high-performance computing with R. This covers profiling,
vectorisation, interfacing compiled code, debugging, parallel computing, as
well as scripting and automation. Slides, and a 2-up version, are now on my presentations page.
I also gave two regular conference presentations. The first was on my Rcpp and RInside packages
which facilitate interfacing R and C++. The second talk, based on joint work
with Charles Blundell, describes our cran2deb system for creating Debian
packages of essentially all CRAN packages. I will try to follow up on this with another post. Slides from
these talks are also on my presentations page.
