Dear SAS Users -
As I write this last post for 2010, I have one ear listening to the weather forecast for signs that we should pull out the sleds and snow boots. MAYBE we’ll get a little snow in the next few days to make it really seem like winter in North Carolina.
I don’t know about you, but a touch of winter weather encourages me to bring family and friends close, get a fire going, do some baking, and slow down enough to appreciate all of those I hold dear.
To me, the SAS Press program (that mix of SAS authors who spend countless hours developing content to help the SAS user community grow), the SAS Press Team (those who shepherd and distribute the content), and you (the users who learn from the content and offer feedback) are a few of the things I hold dear.
It’s been an amazing year with SAS Press. Here are some of the highlights:
- Thanks to SAS Press authors, there are 20 new titles to help users get even better use of SAS and JMP.
- Even more SAS Press books are available digitally, through Kindle, Books24x7, Safari, and now, Google Editions.
- If you’re looking to hear even more from SAS Press authors, check out YouTube and The Cover Story for SAS author interviews, SAS Talks for SAS Press author webinars, and SAS Publishing’s Facebook page for their blog posts. You can also find all of this and more on our author pages.
With 20 more books coming out next year, and 24 new contracts signed, you have something to look forward to in the coming months!
Next year ushers in the 20th year of SAS Press. SAS Press has been so successful because of you—a dedicated SAS user community who is ready to step up and write books or recommend topics. So, grab a cup of something warm, join us on support.sas.com/publishing or Facebook, check out the new offerings, and make your list of the SAS Press authors and content you’ll want to check out next. And, if you don’t see what you’re looking for or have something special on your wishlist, drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’re always eager to hear from you!
