Rcpp: Integrating C++ into R

By |

The Rcpp package for R provides “seamless R and C++ integration”.  In this workshop, we will discuss the use of Rcpp to speed up existing R code by rewriting slow functions in C++.  

The workshop will be centered around a couple of case studies with an opportunity provided for participants to implement a few of their own C++ functions, compile, and call them from R.  Participants should be comfortable programming in R, but need not have any prior exposure to C++.
