A new Rcpp master class is scheduled for March 9 in New York. The format will an updated version of the one-day workshops I have given at the University of Rochester in 2010, in San Franciso in 2011 (organised by Revolution Analytics) and at the UseR! conference in 2012.

The style will be hands-on, with numerous concrete examples and solid coverage of most aspects of Rcpp and related packages. As before, about six hours of instruction, split into four sessions of around ninety minutes focussing (loosely) on motivation/intro, core parts, extensions and applications. This should leave ample time for informal discussions and Q+A—as well as for lunch and coffee breaks—for a total of eight hours in the classroom.

This is being put together in New York with the help of Jared Lander, and we will have some technical assistance from RStudio in order to use their EC2 farm for exercises with Rcpp.

Registrations details are available here; information about other Rcpp events is also available.

Feel free to contact me or Jared at our usual email addresses with questions.
