Reducing Computational Expense

Our favorite speaker, Peter DeWitt, is back to talk about Reducing Computational Expense: Moving From for loops to *apply functions and Multithreading in R. I don't know about the rest of you, but I seriously need the info from this talk! Even if you know about the rest of the *apply functions, it sounds like there's some new advances in multithreading to learn about.

    Thank you everyone for giving me the chance to share what I know about the *apply functions and some other 'tricks' for better coding in R. Presentation slides and source code have been uploaded.

    This was very practical for someone at my level. The presentation was clear and organized. As a bonus, the speaker had a good sense of humor.

    For a newbie, I had no idea I needed *apply functions in my work. Now it's obvious.

    my favorite place to park for these things is under the tabor center. (16th between Larimer and Lawrence, entrances on both sides.) It's about 2 blocks from campus, $5 for the evening.

    Could someone share some information on parking in this area? I have not been to this part of the university before; if there are places to park for free or convenient parking structures that would be very useful to know.
