As s SAS user, the SAS Institute’s Customer Support Center webpage (support.sas.com) is a vital place for information about SAS, but if you only use support.sas.com, you are missing a wide range of resources about the SAS.
sasCommunity.org is a great place to look for information about SAS and is a collaborative Web site where you can access and contribute, as of today more than 600.000 discussions has taken place.
But I want to highlight two other interesting things going on in the SAS User Community where you get to have fun, learn something and maybe even win a prize.
1. SAS Bowl.
Is you enjoy Trivial Pursuit (who doesn’t?), I am sure you will love the SAS Bowl, where you get to test your SAS (and other worldly) knowledge in a SAS Community Trivia event.
It is planned as a monthly event and is a 30-minute game with twenty multiple-choice questions around SAS, trends and other general knowledge.
Check out the schedule for the upcoming SAS Bowls, next one (no. 6) is in January 2021.
2. SAS Analytics Explorer community. Launched in the Nordics this year, in SAS Analytics Explorers, you'll be able to find interesting content, learn from others, share your experiences, and ... get rewarded for the great things you do.
I encourage you to sign up to take part in this and get a chance to win some of the SAS Analytics Explorer socks (or similar) 😊. I hope to “see” you there.
As Christmas is just round the door, I also want to take the chance to wish everybody a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. 2020 was in many ways a special year, maybe ask not too much to ask for 2021 to be more “normal”. I hope to meet many of you in person at FANS events, but for now its time to relax with Family and Friends.
