SAS Global Forum shows "Strength in Numbers"


What a conference so far...

SAS Global Forum is now in full swing, and the two big sessions (Opening Session last night, and the Tech Session this morning) have been packed with impressive material. The attendees I've spoken with have been suitably impressed and enthused. You can view the sessions all on the Livestream channels.

I'll post more when I have a chance, but for now you can follow along on the SAS Users Groups blog, the Twitter stream, and on the Livestream.

Now it's almost time for me to hit the makeshift studio and broadcast the first of two SAS Tech Talks. Tune in if you can!

Could the blogs (not only this one) be a little less dominated by this theme, please? Perhaps one of your blog writers would like to attend and write about something outside the USA, for example KSFE?
