Warm Up for R/Finance

Join us on Wednesday, May 14 for a great meet-up, just before the R/Finance Conference here in Chicago.

Josh Ulrich will explain how to profile your R code to discover its bottlenecks. Josh is a major contributor to R and a member of the R/Finance committee.

Dirk Eddelbuettel will preview his lightning talk, talking about caching data in Redis, the data store. Dirk is a familiar figure in the Chicago R community and also a member of the R/Finance committee.

Finally, Cliff  Clive will share his lessons on how to write clean code for R.

As always, there is free pizza courtesy of Revolution Analytics, our generous sponsor.

Doors open at 5:30. Talks start at 6:00. We'll see you at Jak's Tap!

    Missed this but noticed that Chicago Chapter of American Statistical Association is having a lunch talk on finance at East Bank Club at noon next Tuesday. Not sure how much R will be presented...

      There will be plenty of R, Mike. Chicago's own Peter Carl is discussing his Portfolio Analytics package. Should be great!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.

Henry, started Reno Motorcycle Riders
