To develop a custom task for use in SAS Enterprise Guide (or SAS Add-In for Microsoft Office), you need a few things:
- A working knowledge of SAS and SAS Enterprise Guide
- Microsoft Visual Studio (the free Express edition will do, though the Professional edition is better)
- Some experience with C# or Visual Basic -- or at least with an object-oriented framework such as Java or C++.
Are you wondering whether the class right for you? Watch this video (about 4 minutes long, in which I do my best Troy McClure impersonation). I'll explain what custom tasks are and what you need to know in order to build them. I'll also explain what you can expect to learn from the class, and the skills you should have before you enroll.
