The Bioconductor group in Seattle will offer 'Advanced R / Bioconductor 
Programming' on October 15-16 in Seattle. See


for more information and registration.

Advanced R / Bioconductor Programming provides experienced R and 
Bioconductor users and package developers with an opportunity to develop 
advanced skills for creating performant, re-usable software. This course 
is relevant to R software development in general, but includes insights 
particularly relevant to development of bioinformatics software. The 
material is structured around R packages and their implementation, 
including programming best practices, formal classes and methods, 
accessing data resources, strategies for measuring performance and 
managing large data, interfacing C code, and parallel evaluation. The 
course concludes with an extended tour of key Bioconductor packages for 
representation and manipulation of genomic data. Participants engage in 
lectures and hands-on exercises. Participants require a laptop with 
internet access and a current browser.
