Updated list of upcoming Rcpp talks and workshops

(This article was first published on Thinking inside the box , and kindly contributed to R-bloggers)

This is an updated version of an
earlier post
in March.

A number of talks about Rcpp are scheduled
over the next couple of months:

  • On Wednesday May 14 I will be speaking at the Chicago R Users Group
    meeting charmingly titled Warm Up for R/Finance, along with
    fellow R/Finance organizer Josh
    Ulrich
    , fellow R/Finance regular Kent Hosxey as well as Cliff
    Clive. I will talk about Redis and my rather recent nascent
    RcppRedis package.
  • Our sixth internation conference R/Finance,
    will take place May 16 and 17, 2014, at UIC in Chicago. See the current
    agenda for details of the program—which
    once again will be preceded by one-hour workshops. And as in the past, I will offer a one-hour
    gentle introduction to Rcpp. This workshop requires
    registration and a fee, and registraion will close shortly.

    I will also present a short lightning talk about the
    RcppRedis package
    as part of the conference proper.

  • A few days later, on May 20, 2014, I will present a one-hour webinar which is part of a series
    organized by Ray DiGiacomo and the Orange County R Users Group.
    See this page for details and registration
    information; the talk itself will be free of charge.
  • Later in the month, on May 30, 2014, I will give a talk / guest lecture about
    Rcpp and
    RcppArmadillo and
    over in Economics at the University of Chicago. I reckon that this event is not open to anybody
    not part of U of C.
  • Another three-hour tutorial is scheduled for the tutorial day preceding
    useR! 2014 at UCLA in early July. This tutorial will
    also require registration as part of the annual useR! conference.

    I am very honoured to have been asked to give one of the
    invited keynotes at
    useR! 2014. The talk may (or may not) cover at least some aspects
    of Rcpp.

    As my talk proposal about the recent
    RcppZiggurat
    package for faster Normal RNGs was accepted, I will also give a regular
    conference talk.

So the month of June remains pretty open. If someone wants me to talk somewhere else, preferably on a
Saturday, feel free to get in touch.
