Special Event: Hadley Wickham and Joe Cheng of RStudio return to BARUG.


6:30pm - Pizza & networking 

7:00pm - Introduction & word from our sponsor, Tarek Rached of Metamarkets 

7:05pm - Presentation by Hadley Wickham and Joe Cheng of RStudio 

8:30pm - End


Hadley is the creator of many popular R packages including ggplot2, plyr, reshape2, and devtools. He will introduce dplyr, a new packagefor blazing fast manipulation of tabular data. dplyr builds on the ideas of the popular plyr package, but focuses on tabular data. It works transparently with data frames, data tables, and SQL databases, and boasts performance several orders of magnitude faster than plyr. 

Joe is the creator of the Shiny web framework for R. He will introduce reactive programming concepts in R using Shiny. Reactive programming is a way of structuring your code that makes it easy and natural for changes in your data to "flow" through your calculations. In much the same way as a spreadsheet can automatically and efficiently recalculate dependent formulas when the value of a cell changes, code that is written in the reactive style can automatically and efficiently respond to changes in your data or parameters.

    Do you know if the "waiting" list at the right is shown in the correct queue order? (now showing 172 people) e.g. first at the top gets the next slot that opens? Just trying to get a feel for the chance to get in should more slots open. thanks.
