Dear Reader,

If you’ve not yet attended a SAS Bowl trivia game, go ahead and treat yourself to half an hour of some good ole’ SAS competitive fun. Hosted by the SAS Support Communities team, the monthly virtual trivia series is running strong and just had its 14th (pardon me, XIV) session on SASPy. Read up on how the trivia runs in general here. We’re experimenting with hosting the live event on Microsoft Teams, versus streaming on YouTube Studio as we’ve done in the past. This allows you to register for the event and even interact with the hosts and other participants before and after the event.

Join us on December 9 at 10 am ET for SAS Bowl XV: SAS Studio Python Code Editor. You’ll get to test your knowledge, see SAS friends and get an adrenaline jolt. If you place in the top three, you’ll be rewarded with some fabulous community swag, personally selected by my colleague Joe Furbee.
