Fake In Person Quarterly Meeting Featuring Rick Langston, Ron Cody & Paul Grant
Time & Location
Our March Quarterly Meeting will feature three presentations:
It's In My DNA: Using SAS To Assist In Determining Biological Parents By DNA Matching by Rick Langston
This presentation will describe a SAS program I created to process DNA matches from Ancestry.com and which assists the user in creating descendancy listings to help determine previously unknown biological parents. The program reads HTML data to extract match results, and provides a mechanism to cross-reference these results with relationships constructed from family trees, obituaries, and other historical records. This presentation will walk the viewer through the entire process. For BASUG, I will also discuss the issue of dealing with a SAS implementation vs. a Python implementation. I will describe reasons for using Python, and compare some of the differences between the SAS and Python implementations.
Free Online SAS® Resources by Paul Grant
This talk will highlight a number of free, self-study, SAS resources available on the web. Some of these you may know about; many, you may not. The resources range from basic tutorials to materials on the latest SAS technologies.
A Tour of the SAS University Edition (AKA "Free SAS") by Ron Cody
Did you know that you can use SAS at home for personal educational use for FREE? This talk presents the SAS University Edition and the SAS Studio interface, both of which are available at no cost. In this session, we’ll briefly go through the steps needed to set up the SAS University Edition on your home computer. We’ll explore both the SAS Studio point-and-click tasks and the programming environment. By the end of this session, you’ll want to download, install and use the SAS University Edition to create your personal, free SAS learning environment.
