Dear participant in the tutorial on “Introduction to parallel computing with R“,

Welcome to the tutorial! I’d like to share some practical information with you:

The tutorial will take place on Tuesday July 4th at 9:30am at the Wild Gallery (3.01).

Please read the description of the tutorial, so that you know what to expect and also what not to expect:
(You might want to bookmark it as the material will be  provided from that page later.)

Please bring your laptop with you. Even though the ability to provide individual support will be limited, it should be straightforward to follow along with the material.

For RStudio users, please note that currently RStudio contains a bug that prevents one of the packages handled in the tutorial from working correctly. Thus I recommend that you use an alternative R user interface than RStudio. If you use RStudio, you will not be able to run about 1/4 of the material. (This bug in RStudio was reported and hopefully will be fixed soon.)

There will be time during the tutorial to install all the required packages.  If you want to get ahead, here is the command to do this:
install.packages(c("foreach", "doParallel", "doRNG", "snowFT", "extraDistr", "ggplot2", "reshape2”, “wpp2017”),  dependencies = TRUE)

Finally, if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask me (hanas@uw.edu).

Looking forward to seeing you in Brussels.
