Updated list of upcoming Rcpp talks and workshops

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 international 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.
