A Jurassic Programmer or 'Hey ya wanna buy a semicolon?' by Arthur L. Carpenter


Through the eyes of a statistician and self-taught SAS programmer, this talk includes an incomplete history of SAS starting from before the invention of the semi-colon. Excerpts from papers presented through the years will be used to provide the historical context. Along the way you may learn the answers to such profound questions as ‘Where is the eastern most point in the United States’, and ‘Do they accept US currency in Alaska?’.


Register for this fun and informative webinar.
