Last week I had the opportunity to spend a few days at the Institute for Statistics and Mathematics of the WU Vienna / Wirtschaftsuniversitaet Wien. On Thursday, I gave a seminar on Rcpp and RInside introducing all the recent work with Romain on making R and C++ integration easier. Both (compact) handout and (full) presentation slides are now posted alongside the other presentations.
On Friday, I also gave an informal lecture / tutorial / workshop to some of the Stats and Finance Ph.D. students, drawing largely from the section on parallel computing of the most recent Introduction to High-Performance Computing with R tutorial.
My sincere thanks to Kurt Hornik and Stefan Theussl for the invite — it was a great trip, notwithstanding the mostly unseasonally cold and wet weather.
