SAS is in the air


Today is Valentine's Day, and for many people it will be a day to celebrate with their significant other. Whether it's expressed by a nice dinner out, a bouquet of roses, or a big box of chocolates, there's no doubt that love will be in the air. It reminds me a little of SAS Global Forum. While there probably won't be chocolates and flowers exchanged between users, it is a conference that celebrates the passion they have for this software and all it can do.

SAS Global Forum 2014 brings together thousands of SAS users from around the world eager to soak up knowledge from their peers. Attendees are exposed to innovative concepts, ideas and best practices from fellow SAS practitioners and industry-leading experts. They also benefit from the informal knowledge gained interacting with peers and exhibitors on the Demo Hall Floor or at any of a number of networking opportunities planned for the event.

At this years’ event, SAS Education has a number of opportunities to help users build on their SAS knowledge as well. It all starts at our training centers in Rockville and DC with pre-conference training on March 19-21. Then, after the conference, we are offering post-conference training, March 27-28.

If you’re ready to test your SAS skills, our Global Certification team will be onsite at the conference hotel on Saturday and Sunday, March 22 or 23, to administer SAS certification exams. To further ignite that passion, we’re extending a free review course to anyone who will be taking the Base Programming exam at SAS Global Forum.  Now, if that’s not love…

And, if you find yourself at the event, please be sure to stop by the Education booth in the Demo Hall and say hi. Chocolates are optional.
