sasCommunity Tip of the Day

Starting with SAS®9.2, a new reserved macro variable named _METAFOLDER is available. The value of the variable is the SAS metadata path for the currently running stored process. This allows a program to reference another stored process in the same folder without having to hard-code the entire path, or parse the path value from the _PROGRAM macro variable.

In version 9.1.3, you can use the storedProcessPath macro (see the read more link below) get the path value of the currently executing stored process, and more.

SAS® Developer Experience Community Linkup

March 23, 2017

Developers Community Linkup Announced

Monday, April 3 | 6:30 - 8 p.m. | Dolphin – Lobby Level 3, Asia 2

Are you a coder or software engineer? Do you use Python or Java to build applications? Is REST how you include analytics in your development? Are you familiar with – and do you get excited about – APIs? If so, you are invited to a SAS Global Forum developer experience meetup.

This is not a sales event. SAS is hosting a roundtable discussion to learn what software developers want when building analytics applications using SAS. The discussion will begin with SAS sharing what is in place today, and what is planned. It will include audience participation to learn what motivates a software developer to consider SAS and what APIs would be most helpful. Feedback from this session will help drive SAS’ next iteration of product development and market positioning.

Reserve your seat at this roundtable discussion.
