Past, Present, and Future… who KNEW (Knows New Exciting Ways)?
Claudine Lougee, Dualenic, LLC
Did you ever think, “Someone must have done this before”? If you’ve ever coded anything that took some time or was challenging, someone probably has done it another way. The other way could be different, the same, easier, or slightly advanced. This paper will provide a list of past, present, and future SAS users and authors who are experienced in writing code and teaching methods through SAS® papers and BBU (Books by Users). This will be valuable for googling SAS papers and finding the right code for your needs.
