With any software program, there are always new tips and tricks to learn, and nobody can know them all. Sometimes I even pick up tips or techniques from my students while they’re learning broader programming tips from me.

It makes us instructors pull deep down into the recesses of our minds and see how far we can extend the use of SAS in creative ways.
