Workshop: Optimizing R Code
R is often considered a slow programming language. In some cases, this is caused by inefficient code. This workshop examines how to write R programs which are more efficient. Topics will include the causes for R being slow, techniques for making R code run faster, and methods for timing blocks of code.
Rivanna is available to UVA affiliated researchers. The only prior knowledge assumed for this workshop is some programming experience with R. Be sure to bring a laptop in order to participate.
