New Rcpp page on upcoming events — including Master Class in New York

Lots of exciting things are happening with and around Rcpp.
I just added a new page about Upcoming Events to the recently-created
Rcpp site. This events page has lots to cover: an upcoming talk at Columbia on March 8 (details still TBD),
a day-long workshop in New York on March 9, a possible participation at a CERN / ROOT conference in Switzerland on May
11-14, an upcoming talk in May in Milwaukee, and last but not least the tutorial by Romain and Hadley at UseR!
2013 in Spain. Phew!

With that, a few quick words about the
upcoming master class in New York.
It will be a full day, covering an introduction and motivation, details about the core data types, tools for working with and
and extending Rcpp and of course applications galore, including RcppArmadillo and RInside. I have done the same one day
class format a few times before, most recently (with Revolution Analytics) in San Francisco in late 2011, and also as a two-part seminar at UseR!
2012. This time, we plan on providing cloud-hosted RStudio instances for participants. Better still, RStudio’s own JJ
Allaire will be on deck as well for RStudio — and Rcpp Attributes — questions.

Details and registration information for the New York class are at
this page.
