Greetings and Salutations! I hope everyone who attended SAS Global Forum found the experience fun, educational, and inspirational! One of the sessions that was quite popular was the Hands-On-Workshop, "An Insider's Guide to SAS/ACCESS to Hadoop". This was taught by Jeff Bailey (Cloudera, formerly with SAS) and Diane Hatcher (SAS). Yes, that's me! :smileyhappy:
By popular demand, I am providing the slides and exercises for the class. We didn't quite get through all of the exercises in 2 hours. There were a lot of great questions and discussion! Hadoop is a brave, new world -- so we are all learning together on how it works and how it works with SAS.
Some notes here:
Please feel free to post your feedback and questions about the exercises in the comments for this post. I hope you get a chance to try out these exercises -- they will teach you alot about how to use SAS with Hadoop!
