Thanks to everyone who attended the webinar I presented this morning, High-Performance Analytics with REvolution R and Windows HPC Server. My slides are now available for download at the link below; even if you’re not using Windows, I hope the slides are a useful introduction to the foreach parallel programming construct in general. If you do use R on Windows, there’s some new material on using the new doSMP package (included in current versions of REvolution R Community and REvolution R Enterprise) for local parallel processing on multi-core workstations, and a guide for distributing those computation to a Windows HPC Server cluster using the doNWS package (included with REvolution R Enterprise).

In addition to the slides, a replay of the webinar with audio (in Windows WMV format[*]) will appear in the next couple of days at the link below.

[*] Apologies to folks not on Windows for whom that format is a pain – it’s an artifact of the NetMeeting software we used for the webinar, which also caused audio problems for some viewers. We’ll return to using GoToWebinar (with cross-platform support) for future webinars.
