Session Summary:

Is it possible to do meaningful work in R on a $35 computer? How about a $15 computer? And what does that mean for education, data science, and computing on small devices? In this talk, Mark introduces the project, its background and why on earth you'd even want to run R at the opposite end of "scale" from everyone else.
