One day I’m going to write about how Excel was (is?) my gateway tool to Data Science.
Today is not that day.
Today I’m going to rave about an Excel ‘tutorial’ video which not is not only useful, but also entertaining. It’s Joel Spolsky’s “You Suck at Excel.”
The video walks you through common Excel user “pains in the butt”, and how to NOT do them. I can’t believe I haven’t discovered this sooner.
If you have an hour to spare, please please PLEASE use it to watch this video. It will save you a lot of headache later.
Joel has made his notes available here, while mine can be found below.
