For most people, the day before Halloween means throwing together a last-minute costume or buying the last of the candy at your local Walgreen’s. However, October 30th means something different for the South Central SAS Users Group (SCSUG). It is the day users gather for a one-day event packed with educational and career opportunities in Baton Rouge, LA.
With so many events, conference attendees might be scared that they’ll miss out on the best events. Have no fear, here are our top three “can’t miss” SCSUG happenings:
- Student Symposium
Louisiana State University, Oklahoma State University and The University of Alabama will host a Graduate Student Symposium in Analytics during SCSUG. Nine students (three from each university) will present papers on a variety of analytics topics including the different ways SAS software is used to analyze data. Industry experts from companies sponsoring the conference will serve as mentors and provide commentary on the students’ work. Read the abstracts and learn more about the symposium on the SCSUG website.
- Ask Vince: Moving SAS Data and Analytical Results to Microsoft Excel
Vince Delgobbo, Senior Software Developer and popular SAS presenter, will host an open-ended discussion on transferring data and analytics from SAS to Microsoft Excel. The content of this session depends upon attendee questions, so come prepared! You can also submit your questions in advance.
- What's Hot, What's Not - Skills for SAS® Professionals
Education and professional development go hand-in-hand. With so many techniques, procedures and programming tools, young professionals need insight on where they should focus. This presentation will give the new generation of SAS professionals an inside perspective on up-and-coming careers.
We hope to see you there!
