If you missed it, you missed out. The SAS Community trivia event, SAS Bowl I, Enterprise Guide Tips and Tricks transpired on Tuesday, rallying dozens of SAS users (48 players to be exact), congregating to display their SAS acumen and have a little fun.
Let’s recap some highlights.
Participants were greeted by emcee, @ChrisHemedinger, who was also the featured subject matter expert on the Enterprise Guide (EG) game theme. Focus questions on EG were looped in with queries on SAS programming, math, science, entertainment, current events, and history. The game even included a question on Roman Numerals, which as Chris pointed out, SAS can process.
Congratulations to the winners for the event: @supp, @mbuchecker, and @mtgkooks with 16, 15, and 15 correct answers, respectively. Quite impressive! Your Community swag is being processed and will be shipped out soon. Note that all participants receive a SAS Bowl Community badge.
If you did miss the event, don’t fret. We’re already cooking up the next installment. SAS Bowl II, Free Data Friday features the Community article series by the same name. We’re working with @ChrisBrooks , a regular contributor to the series for round two preparation. The event is scheduled for Tuesday, September 22, 2020 at 10 AM EDT. Further details and resource links will be made available on the Community shortly.
Note: A minor technical issue prevented the recording of the event. Rest assured we’ll iron that out and all future events will be recorded in case you can’t make the live version.
