A winter term at Hemedinger U.


I received this offer in the post the other day: "University apparel just for you, featuring the name HEMEDINGER!"

Yes, the offer has it correct. This would be just for me, because I can't think of anyone else who might order it.

I regret that I didn't receive the offer soon enough to order a set for the students that I'll have next week. I'm travelling down to Sydney, Australia to teach a two-day course titled, "SAS Enterprise Guide for Experienced SAS Users: An Insider's Perspective." I'm really looking forward to leading the course. (To be honest, I'm really looking forward to visiting Australia; teaching the course is a bonus.)

The course is a mash-up of a few offerings: SAS Enterprise Guide for Experienced SAS Programmers, SAS For Dummies topics, and my own secret sauce of topics that I know about from my vantage point in SAS R&D.

It's winter in Australia, but I know that I'll stay plenty warm because, while I'm down there, I'll never stop moving. In addition to the course, I'll attend SAS Forum Australia and New Zealand 2010. And in the days that follow I'll have a chance to visit customers throughout Australia and even into New Zealand.

I'm looking forward to meeting my colleagues and customers from Down Under. If you attend SAS Forum ANZ and you happen to see me there, perhaps looking a bit dazed from jet lag, please make a point of saying hello.

  1. I think you should order it and have it for your next workshop. That would be awesome.
