I look at the agenda for breakout sessions, and there are so many. I would like to ask for some recommendations for "MUST SEE" breakout sessions. I am a intermediate programmer and I work in financial industry, but I am generally interested in anything new cool things and features that SAS provides.

Same for me, here are a few that seem interesting:

I'm always hesitant to post which one's I'm interested in due to it possibly leading to increased demand for seats, but I'm looking forward to Derek Morgan's Essentials of SAS Dates and Times session.

Have you downloaded the SGF conference app yet?  If so, there are some “sample agendas” that may give you ideas for sessions to attend.  At the main page for the app, go to Users Program Sessions --> Sample Agendas --> Analytics, and there are options for “Fraud Detection and Risk Management” and “Banking” among several others. 


Hopefully this helps.

Here is a shameless plug.  Selerity are presenting two papers this year.  One on monitoring SAS in the cloud aimed more at administrators and one presenting a new testing framework for SAS and Viya relevant for SAS Administrators, Analysts and Programmers.
