Crossing the Technical Frontier



This SDE will look at the future landscape of clinical data programming. We will explore new tools and approaches that are fundamentally different to what is used today. The requisite skill set of the future will be radically transformed from the current paradigm. Clinical programmers of tomorrow may include SAS as just one of many arrows in their quiver in order to hit the mark with data analysis. We will look past the immediate and somewhat static horizon and all that currently constrains us. We will project forward, into this dynamic new world, and discuss the possibilities that exist beyond the technical frontier of data exploration.
