Parallel R with Hadoop

From: Drew C.
Sent on: Thursday, October 20, 2011 3:14 PM
The Open Statistical Programming Meetup is hosting a meetup on using R with Hadoop that may be of interest to this group.  You are all welcome to attend.

R is free, open-source, and in many ways a data scientist's dream ... but it strains under new-age Big Data problems.  One solution is to use Hadoop's scalable, parallel computing framework to drive R.  In this talk, consultant and author of the forthcoming book Parallel R, Q Ethan McCallum will walk through the what, how, and why of getting R to dance with the elephant.

Per are usual schedule, there will be pizza and networking starting at 6:15, then Q will begin promptly at 7pm, and for those interested we will make our way to a local bar after the presentation.

Hope to see you there!

- Drew
