Now’s your chance! Chris Hemedinger, co-author of the wildly popular SAS for Dummies will be signing copies of his book during SAS Global Forum. Stop by the Publishing booth in the Demo Area on Tuesday, March 18 from 3:00 – 3:30 and you can say you’ve met a real SAS Dummy!

Chris is also a presenter during the conference. His talks include:

The Perfect Baby Name: One Dad’s Quest Using SAS.
If you think that baby names and data analysis have nothing to do with one another, then you haven’t read Freakonomics. When Chris and his wife were expecting their third daughter and were selecting her name, they had specific criteria in mind. This paper describes how Chris used SAS Enterprise Guide and data from the Social Security Administration to select a list of candidate names and how this helped them embark on the process with their eyes wide open.

Find Out What You’re Missing: Programming with SAS Enterprise Guide (co-authored with colleague Bill J. Gibson).
In this paper, you can read about the productivity gains that you can enjoy when you add SAS Enterprise Guide to your SAS programming toolbox. You will see how to perform old tasks in a new way as well as how to accomplish some tasks that would be have been very difficult — if not impossible — without the benefit of an integrated tool like SAS Enterprise Guide.
