I am sure every single SAS programmer has been through hard time spending hours to debug your SAS code and trying to fix the log issues. Sometimes it gets very frustrated after several attempts. I was there when I started my first job too and have been through this painful learning process. After years of experience, I can resolve most errors nice and quick, and what’s more important, I am able to write code with less and less errors. To bring my know-how to more people, and make you spend less time to build up your experience, I decide to open this course to share my experience.
The entire course is split into two sections, the first one is about the log issues, their root cause and how to resolve them, and the second is about good programming practice.
In this course, you will be first exposed to many common log issues that most beginners make, and you will learn to understand and troubleshoot them. This helps you create a mindset of keeping a clean log, which is crucial to deliver high quality of products.
Good programming practice as another important section, will then be introduced to help you prevent the issues beforehand. For beginners and intermediate SAS users, it’s very important to build up a good programming habit, which will be beneficial in long term. For SAS working professionals, the course materials can be served as the SAS programming bible or cheat sheet if you may call, to refer to in your daily job, which will be a very convenient source for log check and good programming practice.

I am a professional biostatistician working in the world's biggest Contract Research Organization (CRO) company. My job is to improve the efficacy and safety of new drugs. It is meaningful to me as it helps improve patient's health and quality of life. I am also pursuing my Ph.D. degree at the moment. It is a field where serious statistics and data analysis is required. I've also worked in a marketing position where database marketing was performed to promote the sales of the product.
Having been exposed to the academic, financial, and clinical environment, I possess versatile SAS experience. I am systematically trained and am holding 3 SAS certifications: SAS Base, SAS Advance, and SAS Clinical Trial.
Learning data analysis is not always easy, that's why I would like to create several courses at various levels to share my knowledge and expertise so that you can avoid the pitfalls and gain efficiency while learning SAS.
