Dear Readers,

Did you attend SESUG 2012? It was great! Christina Harvey and I were there and attended many great presentations. We made some new friends and caught up with some old friends. If you want to see what we saw, take a look at the SESUG posts on the SAS Users Groups blog. Download the zip file at to take a look at all of the papers. (Congratulations to Janet Willis, from Rho, Inc. She was awarded Best Poster for Do You Have Too Much Class?  You can find her paper in the zip file as PO-04.

And take a look at the new series for SAS administrators on the SAS Users Groups blog. Christina and I plan to give administrators information that includes talking with IT, storage and IO subsystems.
