**Using R to fail fast: Driving data acceptance in industry**

Using data in a traditional value based company can be taunting task. In this talk, I will present some of the approaches I used for pushing data tools to my colleagues, and why failing to produce the perfect tools is important.

**bigstatsr: Out-of-memory matrices**

R package \\{bigstatsr\\} provides a special class of matrix that can be used to store some data in a matrix-like format __on disk__ but to access it almost as if it were in memory. It is particularly useful when you analyze large matrices and when you want to parallelize your code. Various efficient statistical and helper functions are provided for this data format.
