Course Overview

This course focuses on DS2, a fourth-generation SAS-proprietary language providing modern programming techniques and structures for parallel processing and preparing large data for analysis. A brief introduction to Hadoop, including a comparison to traditional relational databases, is included. If you are a programmer/data scientist who wants training and hands-on experience manipulating Hadoop data using powerful SAS algorithms, this class is for you.

This course can help prepare you for the following certification exam(s): SAS Big Data Programming and Loading.

Program Objectives

At Course Completion

• Describe Hadoop and its core technologies

• Differentiate between Hadoop and traditional relational database management systems

• Identify the similarities and differences between traditional SAS DATA steps and DS2 DATA programs

• Convert a Base SAS DATA step to a DS2 DATA program

• Use DS2 variable declarations, expressions, and methods for data conversion, manipulation, and conditional processing

• Create user-defined packages to store, share, and execute user-defined DS2 methods

• Use predefined DS2 packages for advanced data manipulation

• Create and execute DS2 threads for parallel processing

• Leverage the SAS In-Database Code Accelerator to execute DS2 code directly on a Hadoop cluster

• Execute DS2 code in the SAS High-Performance Analytics grid using the HPDS2 procedure.
