This workshop introduces the university's cluster computers and shows how to run your R code on them. This is helpful when your code takes a long time run or is too large to run efficiently on your own machine.
We will start by running ordinary R code on just a single node of the cluster, effectively using it as an extra computer, We then show how to adjust your code so that it runs in parallel on multiple nodes, which can make it run faster.
You should either have taken the QAPS workshop on the Unix shell or be familiar with in a Unix shell, e.g. on Nobel or in the Terminal on OSX.

This workshop is open to anyone interested in getting an introduction to running R on the university's cluster computers. If you are not a politics graduate student, please send email to [email protected] that you are planning to attend, so we can ensure enough space in the room.
