All hail the SAS programmer!


SAS offering free learning resources in celebration of programmers

For more than 40 years, SAS programmers have crafted software and solutions that transform the world. From statistics to data science, to analytics and artificial intelligence, people writing code have architected a new economy with incredible opportunities. SAS Programmer Week honors those people by offering free learning resources available for everyone, from students to early career professionals to SAS veterans.

Running from Sept. 7-11, SAS Programmer Week leads up to the international Day of the Programmer on Saturday, Sept. 12. Training resources will be available for free through a variety of YouTube and video tutorials, webinars, blogs and documentation.

There will be three different tracks for new, experienced and analytics-focused users, with new content released each day. The week culminates with SAS certification prep content that will have participants ready to pursue a valuable SAS credential.

For instance, Tech Republic named SAS as one of 7 data science certifications to boost your resume and salary. CIO Magazine puts SAS among the top 11 big data and analytics certifications for 2020.

Since SAS programmers are busy and may not have all day to engage with the materials, SAS Programmer Week is flexible. Participants can access the material when they want to learn a specific skill related to the day’s topic or consume the material in snippets when they have time.

Interested participants can visit the SAS Programmer Week website to register today, preview the materials and schedule, and jump-start their career journeys.
