Revolution’s experts in parallel computing maintain the following packages on CRAN: • doMC • doParallel • doSNOW • foreach • iterators • nws Leading the way for integrating R with Hadoop. Recognizing early on that the Hadoop project would become very important for R minded data scientists and statisticians for working with big data Revolution initiated the RHADOOP project on Github. Today, the three packages rmr  (writing map- reduce jobs in R), rhbase (queriring the HBASE data base) and rhdfs (working with the HDFS file system) are the gold stan- dards for using R with Hadoop Helpr: Helpr is an R package that betters friendly HTML documentation. With links to other packages, func- tion aliases, and function sources, finding information is a click away. Using the comprehensive search bar, searching across all R packages is quick and effortless. The development of helpr was made possible with generous support from Revolution Analytics.
