Top 10 Regrets on Learning the SAS Language

R in the Cloud

R for Quantitative Finance

Software

Train in R

  1. I didn’t learn the SAS Macro Language enough. SAS Macros are cool, and fast. Ditto for arrays. or ODS.
  2. Not keeping up with the changes in Version 9+. Especially the hash method.(Why name a technique after a recreational drug,  most unfair)
  3. Not studying more statistics theory.
  4. Flunking SAS Certification Twice.
  5. Not making enough money because customers need a solution not a p value.
  6. There is no Proc common sense. There is no Proc Clean the Data.
  7. No Macros to automate the model. Here is dirty data. There is clean model.  Wait till version 16.
  8. Not getting selected by SAS R & D.Not applying to SAS R & D.
  9. Google has better voice recognition for typing notes. No Voice Recognition in SAS langvuage to type syntax.
  10. Enhanced Editor and EG are both idiotic junk pushed by Marketing!
