8th R-in-Grenoble working session

on the April 26, 2018

April, 26th, from 16:00 to 18:00
The eighth working session of the Grenoble R community will be about Parallel computing. Drinks and snacks are served during the second part of the session.

Each month, the Grenoble R-group organizes one working session of 2 hours, on Thursdays, from 16h-18h, at the IMAG building.

Everyone is welcome from beginners to advanced R users. Participants just need to bring their laptop. Presentations or tutorials will last 30 to 60 min, on R topics that can be useful to many people, with practical examples. During the second part of the session, specific problems encountered by participants when coding in R will be discussed.

Drinks and snacks will be shared during the second part of the session.


April 26, 2018: Parallel computing

'Compute as you sew' is a short presentation that demystifies parallelism. It defines simple parallel programming paradigms based on an understandable model of the computer. It shows concrete examples of collaborative tasks quoted from sewing domain. A short R implementation is offered and limits of the approach are discussed. 'Compute as you sew' will definitely changes your point of view on parallelism (and on sewing). It will make your code greater, more efficient, more easy to read or to transpose on modern computers and on HPC infrastructures. It will for sure make your (R) life better. It could also change the world but it cannot do that without you.
