This course is for anyone who wants to make their R code faster to type, faster to run and more scalable. During the course, we’ll cover the main R sins (and how to avoid them), dabble with hardware, look at running in parallel and think about efficient R data structure. This course should be useful to people with a range of skill levels.
Jumping Rivers staff quite literally wrote the book on Efficient R programming. Dr Colin Gillespie, a consultant at Jumping Rivers and Senior Statistics Lecturer in the School of Mathematics & Statistics at Newcastle University is the author of the recent O’Reilly book.

It will be assumed that participants are familiar with R. In particular, functions and for loops. Attending the programming with R course will be sufficient.
