By some measures, R is the most popular software package for the analysis of data. But R has a reputation for being sluggish and inappropriate for large datasets. However, much of R’s problems with performance and scalability are due to bad practices of individual programmers rather than being inherent limitations of R itself.

In this half day (4 hour) tutorial, we will introduce the attendee to debugging, profiling and performance analysis, optimization, foreign language API’s, and parallel programming with R. There will also be a comprehensive hands-on component to reinforce topics introduced during the lecture portion. The tutorial is ideally suited for those already working with R, as well as service providers who are serving R customers. The content is appropriate for any students, researchers, or staff who are working with R and interested in performance.

This is a joint training between the University of Tennessee, NIMBioS, XSEDE, and NICS.
