We're talking speed!
As a developer rather than a statistician, one barrier that I see to R usage and evangelism is the perception (and reality) of R’s slow processing speeds. Whether you’re doing thousands of simulations, or just reading a large file into a workspace or app, waiting time matters. In this talk, I’m digging into what makes R slow, and what tools, packages, techniques and platforms are out there to boost R performance.
