A Tale of Two Packages

  • May 23, 2012 · 7:00 PM

Tim Hesterberg will be talking about the dataframe package.

This package contains replacements for the data frame creation and subscripting functions in R, that dramatically cut the number of copies of that R makes of the data, e.g. from four to one for vector), and from 10 to 3 for data.frame(a list). Naturally, this is faster. I'll give tips on how to improve your own code.

The aggregate package contains aggregation utilities, including improved versions of existing R functions, and new faster functions that drop down to C for speed.

This will be back in the Arnold building again, check the map:

    I learned some tricks and tried a few as soon as I got home. It was an interesting session.

    It was my first one so nothing to compare it to, but very informative!
