This year, to celebrate the 25th anniversary of SAS Press, we are offering a 25% discount on all our SAS Press books at JSM (Joint Statistical Meetings). Over the last 25 years, SAS Press has published 250 books; has worked with more than 300 SAS authors and has millions of satisfied SAS users! So come and celebrate with us and get your 25% discount on one or more of our great titles.
I’m sure by now you will have heard about SAS® University Edition, which provides free access to SAS software quickly and easily for students, professors and independent learners. Bestselling author, Ron Cody has just finished his latest title, An Introduction to SAS University Edition - which does what it says on the jar - and provides a comprehensive guide on how to get started with SAS University Edition and use it to solve problems, using the point-and-click interface of SAS Studio, and how to write your own SAS programs. Come and visit the SAS Press booth and take a look at the preview copy.
So you have the software, and know there is a great book coming soon to get you up and running, but where to get the data? Free Data Friday is a new initiative from the SAS Analytics U community starting this fall. Over a series of 12 blogs, the community will show where to get a particular data set, how to read it into SAS, at least one model or statistic showing something interesting with that data, and at least one ODS or SAS Studio graph to show the results.
With the huge success of SAS University Edition, we are very excited at the opening market for SAS titles and opportunities for new titles. We would love to hear your book ideas and experiences. If you are interested in writing a SAS book, or know someone who should write a book for SAS, then please pop over to the SAS Press booth in the exhibition hall and let us know -- or send us your author recommendations!
