It's as Easy As SASPy to Combine SAS® and Python in Teaching the Data Sciences
Presented by: James Harroun (Data Science Initiatives Manager, SAS® Institute)
SAS® University Edition provides wrap-around support for users who want to explore the data sciences from a variety of perspectives and interfaces. Existing SAS users and new SAS users who want to learn SAS for the first time can launch SAS Studio, the latest SAS interface with intuitive navigation and a supportive graphical user interface. Users looking to take a deeper dive into using SAS to learn the data sciences can launch the JupyterLab interface and code their hearts out using conventional SAS DATA and PROC steps, traditional Python scripts, and a Python package called SASPy that calls SAS from a Python-like syntax. This webinar will give an overview of how to use SAS® University Edition, which is available at no charge to educators and learners for academic, noncommercial use, to launch right into combining SAS®, Python, and SASPy into a single notebook application that speaks the languages of the data scientist.
