The World Series had just started at press time, but one thing is certain – the Boston Red Sox didn’t win it! While statistics are now the heart and soul of many major league baseball operations, I don’t think they can explain the Sox collapse! If you need a little transition from baseball to winter sports, check out the movie Moneyball. I liked it.
I gave talks at both NESUG and WUSS this fall and enjoyed talking with their attendees. See the proceedings from the NESUG (NorthEast SAS Users Group) and WUSS (Western Users of SAS Software) for numerous articles about using SAS® software that might benefit you. Other regional conference proceedings should also be available soon.
The 2012 Call for Papers for SAS® Global Forum is open for a few more weeks, with all contributed paper abstracts due Nov. 14, 2011. We’ll offer four pre-conference statistical tutorials which might be of interest to you.
Check out the SAS/STAT® 9.3 Ambassador Kit below as well as the announcement of more videos on the Web. Happy fall computing!
