SAS: Last Post For A While

This will, probably, be the last SAS post, for a bit, maybe a long bit.  I’m going to back away from the SAS certification.

I’m doing this for the following reasons:

  1. I don’t see a lot of SAS programming in the Bay Area.  It’s out there, even here, but there isn’t a lot.
  2. The work I do see often comes with the caveats of wanting more SAS experience than I’m going to have, and, they often want experience in an industry.  The industry is almost always health care  / clinical trials.
  3. The SAS jobs almost always, at least around here, come attached with a statistics requirement.  I could probably get around that but it would force me into a direction that I’m not quite ready to pursue.

So, I’m going to keep SAS on the back burner, maybe finish it off in the future, but for now, it’ll be something else.

So, if by some chance any of this was helping someone learn SAS, I wish you luck, but for now I’ve going to redirect my efforts.
