Tuesday night I had the opportunity to present on high performance computing in R, and the Los Angeles R Users’ Group. There was so much to talk about that I had to split my talk into two parts. The first part was parallelization and the second part will be big data (and a bit left over from parallelization including Hadoop).
My slides are posted on SlideShare, and available for download here.

The video was created with Vara ScreenFlow and I am very happy with how easy it is to use and how painless editing was.
