LondonR Rcpp slides

I'm just back to london where I presented about Rcpp at mango's LondonR event.

This was the third time (after rmetrics and useR!) I presented these slides, so I allowed myself some new metaphores about my long term relationship with R and my indiscretions with other languages such as C++. I've uploaded my slides to my slideshare account:

I had some time to browse around in South Bank and Covent Garden before the event. I took some pictures from my iphone

LondonR slides

I was in london last week to present RemoteREngine at the LondonR user group sponsored by mango solutions.

Apart from minor technical details and upsetting someone because I did not mention that he once presented a much simpler solution to a quite different problem, it went pretty good and people were interested in what the package can do

Essentially, RemoteREngine is an implementation of REngine using java rmi (remote method invocation) for the data transport.

This allows a (or several) client java application to embed an R engine that lives in a different java virtual machine, perhaps on a different physical machine. In a way it is quite similar to the Rserve implementation of REngine, but rmi gives better control over the data transport and we get things Rserve does not currently do such as support for environments or references.

The slides are available here and will probably also make their way to the conference site at some point
