Triangle Analysts Meetup (R Hackathon: Running R on the Amazon Cloud)

Hi Triangle useRs,

Our next meetup will be on Thursday, June 20 at 6:30pm at
Saladelia Cafe
4201 University Dr
Durham NC 27707
(http://www.saladelia.com/directions/)

I will be hosting a presentation and hackathon on how to use R on Amazon
EC2 (Elastic Compute Cloud).  Using Amazon EC2, you can crunch massive data on servers with high RAM and CPU without paying for the hardware.  Bring your laptop to set up your own free Amazon EC2 instance and to participate in an R programming exercise on Amazon EC2.  You don't need any prior knowledge of Amazon EC2 to participate.

Thanks to Melinda Thielbar and Michelle Black for working the meeting logistics.  Thanks to Michael Blanks and Ujval Kamath who will be at the meetup to offer one-on-one help to participants during the hackathon.

See you on the 20th.


Thanks,
Ian

    I have to be in Denver the rest of the this week, co-incidently for another Hackathon! Any chance I can join remotely, through google hangout or something similar? Was really looking forward to this one.
