David is going to demonstrate the capabilities of MapReduce within R. MapReduce is a programming method to handle very large data sets. MapReduce was first introduced by Google to handle indexing of websites on the internet. Now MapReduce is used in a number of ways to handle big data distributed over many clusters or cores.
For more information on MapReduce.
Please come by to network with fellow R users in the Dallas metroplex.
