Parallel Programming with R & RStudio: Complete Tutorial Guide!

In this course, we’ll start by introducing the fundamentals of parallel programming with R, breaking down how it works.

With Udemy’s 30-day money-back guarantee in place, there’s no need to worry if the class doesn’t meet your expectations.

Following that, we’ll walk through examples of R code that’s slow and needs speeding up.

We’ll then download R, install, and explore the R packages designed for this, discussing the advantages and disadvantages of each tool.  We will learn how the R Compiler can be leveraged to optimize parallel programming processes.

The goal is to make the complex world of parallel programming with R accessible and practical for everyone.

Why R, RStudio, and Posit?

  • R is one of the simplest languages to learn and is very friendly with data manipulation.

  • R is open source and is part of a large community of developers that create and maintain packages we will explore during this course.

  • RStudio is probably the best IDE for programmers (also supports C++, Python, SQL, and other languages).

As of the end of 2023, R is rocking it with these cool numbers:

  • RStudio has an active user base of 3.5 million.

  • Posit cloud has a 65,000 userbase.

  • Over the year, an impressive 2 billion packages were downloaded.

Which R Packages will be covered?

Learn how to install R packages for parallel programming:

  • purrr: set of tools for working with functions and vectors

  • doSNOW: parallel backend of “for” loops

  • furrr: combine purrr’s family of mapping functions with future’s parallel processing capabilities

  • multidplyr:  backend for dplyr that spreads work across multiple processes

Supporting Packages used:

base R: for loops, apply functions

dplyr: data manipulation with a very user-friendly syntax

tidyr: data clean-up, remove duplicates, NA’s etc.

rvest: web scraping

tidytext: text mining for statistical analysis
