I’m excited to share that I’ll be presenting to the MS Excel Toronto meetup on Weds 12/8 at 5p Eastern. The topic is “What Excel Users Should Know about Python.” This is a free online event.

Register now for this free online event.

I’ve presented to this meetup once before (on learning statistics in Excel) and it’s one of the best meetups going, run by Excel and all-around superstar MVP Celia Alves.

Event description and details:

Integration with Python is one of the most highly sought-after Excel features and, if rumors are to be believed, is coming soon. So, what do you as an Excel user need to know about Python, and how should you think about combining these two data power tools? In this presentation, you’ll learn the basics of Python programming, including an introduction to the packages for analysis and visualization which have made it so popular in the data world. Then, you’ll see how to augment and automate your Excel work with your new Python skills, and where to go next.

To make the most of this interactive presentation, please have the following installed on your computer:

A recording will be made available after the event.

All slides, data and files to be used are available at this GitHub repo.

This meetup will be loosely based on my white paper, “Five things Excel users should know about Python.” You can download a copy by signing up below.
