Jedi in Paradise - SAS Global Forum 2014


I'll be at SAS Global Forum again this year. I do SO love SAS Global Forum and the opportunity to talk DATA step, SQL, Macro and DS2 programming with other SAS aficionados! I’d love to connect with you, so send me an email or a tweet (@SASJedi) or just stop me and say ‘Hi’.  Here's my schedule:

  • 19:00 – 20:30: Opening session
  • 20:30 – 22:30: Get-acquainted reception

Monday, March 24

  • 10:30 – 12:10: Helper at SAS Office Analytics Workshop
  • 13:30 – 15:10: Helper at SAS® Workshop: Data Mining
  • 11:30 – 13:30: I’ll be at the SAS Education booth in the Demo area, answering questions about SAS Foundation programming classes (including DS2, if latest SAS programming language interests you!)

  • Nothing scheduled

Wednesday, March 26

If you want to discuss SAS Foundation programming, comment on one of my blog entries, suggest a new blog topic, or just talk about any SASy thing – let’s chat. I hope to see you at SAS Global Forum 2014 in Washington, DC this year!

May the SAS be with you!

SAS Jedi

Principal Technical Training Consultant

Mark Jordan (a.k.a. SAS Jedi) grew up in northeast Brazil as the son of Baptist missionaries. After 20 years as a US Navy submariner pursuing his passion for programming as a hobby, in 1994 he retired, turned his hobby into a dream job, and has been a SAS programmer ever since. Mark writes and teaches a broad spectrum of SAS programming classes, and his book, "Mastering the SAS® DS2 Procedure: Advanced Data Wrangling Techniques" is in its second edition. When he isn’t writing, teaching, or posting “Jedi SAS Tricks”, Mark enjoys playing with his grand and great-grandchildren, hanging out at the beach, and reading science fiction novels. His secret obsession is flying toys – kites, rockets, drones – and though he usually tries to convince Lori that they are for the grandkids, she isn't buying it. Mark lives in historic Williamsburg, VA with his wife, Lori, and Stella, their cat.
