"In the context of the Alphabet Soup project, Oracle Labs is contributing to an open-source optimised implementation of the R programming language and environment called FastR. The R environment has powerful support for plotting and graphics. This internship position should focus on providing an initial version of this functionality. The work to be done involves implementing graphics primitives and higher-level plotting routines. The programming language used is Java; the FastR implementation is based on the Truffle framework for AST-based interpretation. Applicants should have excellent Java programming skills. A background in language implementation is beneficial, as is a solid understanding of R and graphics."
