We're excited to host Jared Lander, Chief Data Scientist of Lander Analytics, the organizer of the New York Open Statistical Programming Meetup & the New York R Conference, & author of R for Everyone, to talk about parallel computing in R.

Talk:Everyone wants their code to run faster & there are numerous ways to achieve this goal. We start by looking at popular packages dplyr, data.table & purrr & the corresponding parallel implementations. We then turn our attention to writing simple C++ functions integrated into R, both sequentially & in parallel. We also build a data.frame aggregation function, starting sequentially, ending in parallel. Throughout this talk we see how to speed up code by running in parallel, locally & across nodes, in R & C++, all within the friendly confines of RStudio.
