Introduces basic concepts of
C++ programming and the
Rcpp API for writing high-performance
C++ code in R. Also points to the use-case of the

C++ linear algebra library (via
RcppArmadillo) to extend the functionality of
Rcpp. This also touches on some of the considerations that need to be made when developing packages which include compiled code.
