SAS Essentials

In Everything, Little SAS Book Series, SAS, Western Users of SAS Software on September 8, 2015 at 7:45 pm

WUSS2015logoThe SAS Essentials section at the Western Users of SAS Software conference was created for people who are new to SAS.  Each year this section includes three core presentations designed to give both a broad overview and, at the same time, a thorough grounding in the fundamentals of SAS. For years I have thought about teaching the SAS Essentials core classes.  Well, this year I finally took the plunge, so to speak.  I really did feel like I was diving into deep water.  It was overwhelming, but it was also fun!  I think I did a good job of covering the basics in a short space.  You can download my slides here:
