The format will follow the workshop Romain and I gave
during the tutorial day preceding this year’s R/Finance conference. The style will once again be
hands-on, with copious concrete examples and solid coverage of most aspects of Rcpp
and related packages such as RInside,
RcppArmadillo and others. The eight-hour schedule contains about six hours
of instruction, split into four sessions of around ninety minutes. This leaves ample time for both lunch and coffee breaks, and for informal
discussions and Q+A.
Two one-day classes will be offered: The first in
New York on Saturday, September 28, 2011 and the second one two weeks later in
San Franciso on Saturday, October 8, 2011.
Please see the official course page for
more details, concrete location info and maps as well as registration details.
