REvolution Computing, proprietors of a commercially supported version of the ‘R’ statistical language, have been featured at three Amercian conferences this summer. They were featured at the Open Source Convention [OSCON], Bioconductor [BioC] and the 2009 Joint Statistical Meetings.
At OSCON, the top open source technology conference sponsored by O’Reilly, Danese Cooper, REvolution’s Open Source Diva, and David Smith, REvolution’s Director of Community, will give a presentation on open source predictive analytics titled “Why We Don’t Understand Risk and How it Dooms Us All,” July 22 at 4:30 pm in Ballroom A8. Cooper, Smith and other REvo representatives will be on hand throughout the convention in booth 405.
BioC is the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center’s annual conference highlighting developments within Bioconductor, a global open source software development project for genomic data. On July 28 from 1-3 pm, REvolution’s Director of Community David Smith will give a workshop titled “Parallel Computing in R.” Smith will demonstrate how to deploy R programming across multiple workstations and clusters to dramatically speed computations, including the use of the new “iterator” and “foreach” packages from CRAN recently developed and released by REvolution Computing.
REvo will also offer a training course in high performance computing with R at the Intel Government Affairs office in Washington, DC. For more info, read the full release here.
