    Of the two meetups so far this is exactly what I was looking for , high performance and parallel R , great that I can now peruse the documents and tinker with the code. Really liked it :-)

    is there an end time for this, how long will the event run for?

      If everything runs smoothly, the talk-section of the meetup should last about an hour. People are more than welcome to stay after to chat and ask further questions to the speakers.
