Session description:

If you’re an Excel user looking to level up your analytics skills, Python is a great choice for repeatable processes, compelling visualizations and robust visualizations. And while learning to code may seem too difficult, your Excel knowledge gives you a significant head start.

This introduction is intended for Excel users with no prior knowledge of Python. By the end of this session, you will know:

  • How Python differs from Excel as an open source software tool
  • How to identify and implement useful packages for data analytics
  • How to navigate and execute code in Jupyter notebooks
  • How to translate common Excel concepts such as cells, ranges and tables to Python equivalents
  • How to enhance Excel and Power BI with Python

I’ll also be giving away some free copies of my book Advancing into Analytics: From Excel to Python and R.

I hope to see you at the presentation!
