In this interview, top SAS Programmer Marje Fecht shares some of the best tips, strategies, and techniques for becoming a top SAS programmer. There are three areas of focus he recommend potential programmers pay attention to. First, is to work on building a solid foundation of SAS knowledge – particularly formal education, including ongoing knowledge and active use of what you learn. The second tip discussed in the interview is that of networking – globally and in your community both from a technical perspective and a business knowledge perspective. His third piece of advice is to expand your knowledge via sharing your knowledge with others. In addition to these points, Marje Fecht also talks about his favorite procedure: PROC COMPARE. PROC COMPARE makes it very easy for you to handle what is the same versus what should be different. He discusses how PROC COMPARE allows for dataset options like "rename equal", "keep equal" and "were equal" and he highly recommends its use.
