Boost your big data skills at Analytics 2015


Among the tightly held cards, piles of chips and bright lights, there have been stories that have unfolded in Las Vegas that have been forever preserved in time, never seeing the light of day.  But what if what happened in Vegas…could be shared with excitement with your friends and family?  Even shared on your resume?

Hi, I'm Mike Janes. I'm going on my 16th year here at SAS. I worked as a project manager and technical support engineer before joining the Education and Training division in my current role as a product marketing manager. I owe a lot to SAS Education and the numerous courses that I've taken over the years. I went from being completely unfamiliar with the SAS language to now manipulating data and creating reports using SAS.
