SC 11 Education Program in Seattle, November, 2011
The information below is for participants in the two RStudio sessions
from the SC 11 Education Program in Seattle.
Access to RStudio
There are several ways to use RStudio for these sessions:
- Recommended Method: Participants at the sessions will
receive a username and password that allows them to login to an
RStudio server hosted on dahl
(the beowulf cluster at Calvin College)
RStudio has also been installed on the loaner laptops for SC11. This is primarily
as a failsafe in case you have trouble with the internet connection to dahl.
You can also download and install both R and RStudio on your own computer.
Versions exist for Mac, PC, and Linux. You can get them here:
Installing R Packages
These session make use of a number of packges. These packages have been installed on our server and
on the loaner laptops. If you are using your own machine (during the conference or after your
return), you can use the following command to install all of these packages in one go:
This may take several minutes to complete.
