An Introduction to Rcpp: Integrating C++ in R
June 30, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Rackham Building, Earl Lewis Room, 3rd Floor East
R is a powerful yet accessible tool for many aspects of data science. However, user written functions in R can sometimes be prohibitively slow since R is an interpreted rather than compiled language. Replacing these with with calls to equivalent functions in C/C++ can often lead to substantial improvements in performance. This workshop is intended as a first introduction to the Rcpp package for seamless integration of C++ code into R.
