I’m on my way back from SAS® Global Forum 2016 (#SASGF), where I heard all about the all new SAS Viya™ platform, and the next exciting thing on my agenda is attending Chris Hemedinger’s course Developing Custom Tasks for SAS Enterprise Guide in Sydney on 3-4 May (it’s also on in Melbourne on 5-6 May).
If you’re interested in extending SAS Enterprise Guide to create useful tools for SAS EG users in your organization then you won’t want to miss the opportunity to attend this course. It is written and delivered by the guy that literally wrote the book on SAS EG custom tasks after all!
I first read Chris’ book Custom Tasks for SAS® Enterprise Guide® Using Microsoft .NET back in 2013 and wrote a blog post about it and how I found it useful in building a couple of custom tasks to query metadata: a Metadata Table Finder and Metadata Column Finder. Incidentally Metacoda provides these customs tasks for free if you want to use them with your SAS platform installation.
I’m looking forward to this course to find about more about creating custom tasks, fill in a few blanks, and generally pick Chris’ brains for a couple of days! :)
If you want to find out more about the course, or reserve a place, then I’d suggest you contact SAS Education soon via the contacts details on the course page.
Hope you see you there!
