Do you live in Wellington, practically *live* in Micosoft Excel, day in, day out, and want an opportunity to pick up tips, tricks, hacks, and code from other Excellers? Have some tricks of your own to pass on? Need a second opinion on an approach you’re taking with a spreadsheet, or help untangling the monster mission-critical minefield of an XLSX file you just inherited?
If so, then boy do I have a group for you: I’ve just set up a dedicated Excel-focused meetup group at http://www.meetup.com/Wellington-Microsoft-Excel-Meetup/ that is just itching for folks like you to join. This Excel-centric group will pretty much cover the spectrum in terms of Excel’s incredibly deep functionality: Formulas, Tables, PivotTables, Charting, PowerPivot, PowerQuery, VBA, spreadsheet auditing and optimisation, dashboarding tips, information visualisation , the works.
I’m in the process of securing a venue for the first meetup, so expect to see more details soon. (And if you can help out with a venue, let me know).
At the same time I’ve come across Phil Seamark’s PowerBI group that has its first meetup on Wednesday at TradeMe. See http://www.meetup.com/Power-BI-User-Group-Wellington-NZ/ for details). No matter where your interest lies on the Excel/PowerPivot/PowerBI spectrum, between us we’ll have you covered. (I’ll be at the PowerBI event on Wednesday night at Trademe, and would love to see you there.)
So regardless of whether you’re a VLOOKUP virgin, or a VBA Virtuoso, a PivotTable pariah, or a PowerBI Professional, between these two groups we’ll have community led content, comment, and camaraderie relevant to you, your job, and your career.
