SAS Tech Talks LIVE from SAS Global Forum


For me, this will be a SAS Global Forum of many "firsts". My first Closing Session. My first time attending as a staffer outside of SAS R&D (well, except for the chilly SUGI 21 in Chicago). And my first chance to host the SAS Tech Talk sessions, which will be live-streamed from the Support and Demo Area at the conference!

Actually, it's a first for everybody, since we've never live-streamed this type of content from the conference. It was a bit of a late addition to my conference schedule, but I am very excited about it.

Each SAS Tech Talk will feature conversations with R&D staffers who are involved in creating the hot new tech from SAS. Each guest will show off their work in a demo, and then you can be part of the show as well, by submitting your questions and comments via the Livestream site.

I think we've secured a great lineup for the two shows. Trying to plan when to tune in? Here's the schedule as it stands right now:


Monday 5pm EDT
