Dear Readers,

SAS Global Forum is just days away. For those of you who will have the opportunity to attend – congratulations! I'm looking forward to meeting as many of you as possible, so please take a moment to say hi.

For those of you who will be following the conference from home, there are many ways to get a little of the conference feel – even though you'll miss the hugs and laughs. For starters, this year, we are live streaming some of the hottest content. (Add these events to your calendar so that you won't miss them!)

Here are some other great ways to stay in touch:
