Learn to Use SAS ODA (OnDemand for Academics) in my FREE Online Course!

Take this free online course to get up and running with SAS online so you can practice your data analytics

Learn to use SAS ODA (OnDemand for Academic) because it is free, and it is what everyone is going to be doing soon. Why? Because our big data have gotten too big, and now, we need to do a bunch of clean-up. There needs to be more integration: SAS-R, SAS-SQL, SAS-Python, etc. But data science students are not learning SAS at the same rate that are learning these other tools.

Learn to use SAS ODA with my FREE Online Course!

As I was writing my book about how to do data warehousing in SAS, I realized that even though I was meeting people who knew there was a free version of SAS available, they weren’t using it. They just hadn’t picked it up. Therefore, I created a free course to help you learn to use SAS ODA and hopefully get started with doing more data science in SAS.
