UCLA Statistical Consulting Classes and Workshops

Classes and Workshops, Summer 2014

SAS DS2 Programming:  Essentials, Tuesday, August 5 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Wednesday, August 6 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in CLICC Classroom C, sign up here (although this workshop will take 2 days, you only need to sign up once).

DS2 is SASís next generation, DATA step-like programming language which enables easy parallel processing and advanced data manipulation. SAS programs which perform computationally complex data processing on large data sets can demonstrate dramatically improved performance when re-written in DS2. The DS2 Programming: Essentials class is designed for experienced SAS programmers who want to leverage new, modern programming techniques to manipulate large data sets while improving performance by taking advantage of the parallel processing capabilities commonly available in modern computing platforms.

NOTE:  This workshop is NOT an introduction to SAS.  If you not familiar with SAS, and data step programming in particular, please take our Introduction to SAS workshop that will be offered during the Fall Quarter.  We will announce the date of that workshop and post the link for the sign up around the beginning of the Fall Quarter.

NOTE:  Only those who are currently affiliated with UCLA may attend this workshop.
