Big Data with R - ff package

R is an amazing data analysis and statistical package.  Yet R requires that data be stored locally on the computer's memory which could lead to memory resource issues and limitations.  The ff package was designed to work around this limitation to enable R to work with very large datasets.

Presenter:  Larry

Topic:  Tutorial on using the ff package in R

When:  Jan. 12

Where:  Haggerty Science Center, Downstairs, Univ. of Dallas.  Parking is available in Lot A. (directions and map)

More information about the ff package can be found at the following CRAN link.


Please join us to network with fellow R users.  Users range from academic to practitioners within several organizations.  Bring a laptop with R loaded so that you can follow along with the presentation or perhaps help others in the discussion.

    Excellent overview of the ff package. The practical examples contributed a lot to the session - I appreciate the effort Larry put into preparing for the meeting.
