Chris Hemedinger, Senior Manager for SAS Online Communities

Chris is the Senior Manager for SAS Online Communities, a global gathering place for SAS users to share questions, answers, and best practices. Since 1993, Chris has worked for SAS as an author, a software developer, an R&D manager, and a consultant. Inexplicably, Chris is still coasting on the limited fame he earned as an author of SAS For Dummies. He also hosts the SAS Tech Talk webcasts each year from SAS Global Forum, connecting viewers with smart people from SAS R&D and the impressive work that they do.
