Dear Reader,

Fall is officially upon us at SAS world headquarters. The leaves are turning and the air is crisp. That means we will be seeing lots of little ghosts and goblins in our neighborhoods tomorrow night. Halloween is celebrated in the U.S. on October 31. And SAS Press is getting in on the holiday spirit by offering a book sale. You will receive 31% off your order from the bookstore when you enter SPOOKY on the checkout page! Hurry, because the offer is only valid October 30 and 31, 2018.

Besides seeing all the cute kids’ costumes, I just love the changing of the seasons. There’s something about the “newness” of a season! In keeping with the “new” theme, the SAS developer web site, developer.sas.com is undergoing a makeover. The site is designed for developers who integrate SAS data into external applications. We’re adding updates and delivering new resources daily. Come and discover now!
