When you think of SAS, do you think of romance? If not, then maybe this Valentine’s Day is the perfect day to change your mind!
We were all treated to a love story for the ages on the SAS Support Communities last year when a SAS user helped craft a marriage proposal using SAS. That’s what you get when you fall in love with a SAS programmer, and it should not be a surprise if they return their adoration by means of a SAS program!
Find that hard to believe?
Well, check out these contributions from some SAS coders who are not afraid to wear their heart on their screen!
Still not convinced?
If you still don’t think that SAS is romantic, then maybe a romance novel will change your mind. SAS plays a pivotal role in the best-selling novel, The Kiss Quotient, which has also been optioned for a movie! The main character, a SAS programmer, hires a boyfriend to teach her how to be in a relationship, and along the way, discovers secrets in data about love. (Warning: NSFW material!)
Yes – I know - SAS has not been an acronym for a long time, but you get the gist.
And don’t worry, we haven’t forgotten about those who are less romantically inclined! You can browse our selection of SAS Books which can help you make a start, or reinforce, your love of SAS coding. We have all kinds of books from getting started to data mining, take a look – it could be love at first sight!
And finally, a short poem from us here at SAS Press in the spirit of romance:
Roses are red, violets are blue,
I’m a SAS programmer,
And you could be too!
