The 42nd annual SAS Global Forum took place this year in mile “high” Denver! This pilgrimage is a firm part of the calendar for SAS professionals around the world.
Kicking off with the partner event on Sunday 8th March, we learned about SAS’s continued commitment to supporting alliances, as part of their forward strategy.
One thing I love about SGF are the random encounters – for instance, bumping into the legend that is Brian Bowman, involved in the very (very) early days of metadata and is now spearheading the tech behind CAS.
Hadley Christoffels (Boemska CEO) gave an excellent talk on “Loading Data via the Cloud”, and it was picked for the SAS livestream! You can watch it below:
My presentation was entitled “Find Your SAS Sensei” and I was fortunate enough to have several celebrity speakers – Chris Blake, Andrew Howell, Joe Matise and Chris Hemedinger! My slides are below, and the paper is here.
The kickback party was an awesome event, lots of VR, fun things to do, and great displays in the mile high stadium!
See you next year in Dallas?
