If so, we’d love to see you in Dallas! Chris Hemedinger and I will be there doing a myriad of things from shooting videos to milling about the Quad (a.k.a. demo floor) to meet as many community members as possible. What’s your schedule looking like during the conference? Not sure where to start? Check out these handy sample session agendas to get going.
If you’ll be there a tad early on Saturday, April 25, don’t miss the #SASGF15 #TweetUp that Michelle Homes and TriciaA have been talking up. I know many of you are going – saw you mentioned it in a recent article comment, Andrew Howell – and I look forward to meeting you!
Chris and I will be at the SAS Community/Support Site booth on Sunday, April 26, from 4:30-6:30 p.m. and Tuesday, April 28, from 4-5 p.m. Lainie Hoverstad will also be at the booth for during most of the Quad open hours. Stop by and say hello.
BONUS: if you’re in need of a head shot for your community avatar, we've got you covered. We can stroll over to the SAS Photo Booth to snap a photo for you to use as an avatar and post to other social sites to tell the world you’re at SAS Global Forum 2015!
Also on Tuesday, you don’t want to miss the Online Communities Linkup from 6:30-8 p.m. for a packed agenda covering the latest developments of six SAS-related communities: communities.sas.com, SAS-L, sasCommunity.org, SAS Canada Community, SASProfessionals.net and the SAS Professional Forum.
Can you tell I’m a bit excited? Share your pre-SAS Global Forum thoughts here! Are you presenting? What’s your favorite thing about the conference?

Thanks for letting us know the community related activities and also mentioning the #SASGF15 #TweetUp. Let us know on Twitter (use the hashtags #SASGF15 #TweetUp) or place a comment on the blog if you plan to join us. https://www.metacoda.com/en/2015/01/lets-meet-sasgf15-tweetup/
I've enjoyed seeing you prepare for previous SAS Global Forums with the Inside Global Forum series such as Anna Brown Previews SAS Global Forum 2012 - YouTube I hope there's one for this year?
I'm excited about catching up with our Metacoda customers, partners and friends and meeting people at the #SASGF15 #TweetUp and conference. I'm not presenting this year and look forward to being at the Metacoda stand in The Quad. Visit us and say hello (or g'day) and collect a Metacoda koala :-)

If you count my short presentation (probably only 1 slide, but a bit more talking) about the SAS Professional Forum group on LinkedIn at the Online Communities Linkup, I'll be presenting 4 times in Dallas. While I'm at the Online Communities Linkup I may talk a bit about the sasCommunity group on LinkedIn too, as I've just joined the group management team there. I will be talking to Lainie Hoverstad about this during SASGF anyway.
In case you're interested in seeing me talk about something other than LinkedIn, my 3 other presentations will be:
I've only missed one SAS Global Forum, since it changed from being called SUGI, and each year I meet up with old friends from previous SASGFs and then make new friends too. I like the idea of the SAS Photo Booth, so you will see me there!
My only regret this year is that I'll miss the #SASGF15 #Tweetup, because my flight from the UK lands too late on Saturday evening.
Looking forward to meeting everyone in Dallas....................Phil

Michelle - thanks for bringing up the Inside SAS Global Forum series! Yes, I will be conducting those video interviews, as will Chris. Chris will also be hosting the "Tech Talks" as he has in years past.
Phil - oh my, you will be busy! Four presentations?! Thanks for taking the time to stop by the Photo Booth between all of those engagements. I look forward to meeting you.

Andrew, Unfortunately, no, I won't be at SGF this year. Besides, as I recall from SF, I was part of the group that fed you too many beverages before your first ever presentation.
However, not one to give up a free drink (preferably NOT coffee), maybe the next(first) time I'm in Australia.

I'll be manning the SAS Community/Support Site booth so please come visit me!
I think we have a couch at our booth -- so come by and "sit a while."
I also plan to be at the Online Communities Meet-up -- on Tuesday night: Online Communities Linkup.
See you soon!

If you can't join us in Dallas for SAS Global Forum and this Communities Linkup, you can still participate remotely via WebEx.
Here is the link to the session - we'll set it up shortly before the "go-live time" of 6:30 pm Central Time. When you connect, you'll have the opportunity to use your computer for audio (recommended) or dial into a conference call. We'll do our best to establish a decent audio connection. We'll also record the presentations for posterity.
