If you were teaching someone who is new to SAS how to write code in Enterprise Guide, where would you have them start? Anything we write at my office has to output a .sas file so that we can schedule it to run. Our scheduler does not handle .egp files at all. We operate in the Unix environment. So, not sure if we should start them with online tutorials, send them to a class, or write our own material.

One could happily use EG forever and never write a single line of code. When the project works as desired you can export the code to a .sas file and have it scheduled as if it was coded by a programmer.
If EG does not cut the cheese I would have a look at the SAS education pages and look for the path towards the SAS Programming certification. And possibly the Advanced Programming after that.
