SAS Global Forum Take-Out: Fast food for your SAS appetite


SAS Global Forum is like a BIG buffet of SAS knowledge, all served up in just a few days. There are so many good presentations and activities, but you cannot fit them all on your plate. You have to choose.

To make the choices easier, the SAS Global Forum committee has assembled a collection of presentations that you can take "to go". It's called SAS Global Forum Take-Out. (In some countries, you might prefer the term "take-away" -- but you get the idea.)

Hosted at, these presentations are "performed" by the actual authors of select SAS Global Forum papers. You can view the slides and notes, and listen to the expert present the material -- whenever and wherever you want. And these are available to everyone -- even if you can't attend the conference.

I was fortunate enough to have a presentation selected to be part of Take-Out. It's called For All of the Hats You Wear: SAS Enterprise Guide Has Got You Covered.

I hope that I have a full and lively audience for my presentation at the conference. But I'm happy that the work I've assembled can "live on" and reach a wider set of people around the world. With Take-Out, you can always reach into the back of the SAS Global Forum "fridge" and find something fresh for your brain to munch on.

  1. Thanks for the Take-out shout-out Chris.

    As you indicated, the Take-Out content is available post-conference, even many months later. For instance, Take-Out from previous years is still available: 2012, 2011.
