Topics include the various ways anyone who wants to learn SAS programming techniques can access “free” learning technologies including SAS On-Demand for Academics and SAS Studio software, SAS technical support, published PDF “white” papers, code examples, comprehensive notes, instructor lesson plans, hands-on exercises, data files, webinars, videos, audio files, and other content.
