This is where it all started
Friend of the program Szilvia Juhasz agreed to be our first guest and attempt this experiment with us. Szilvia is an Excel Trainer and Consultant that works out of Los Angeles. As such, Szilvia also has a passion for music (believe she sings Jazz as well). Szilvia is one of the more creative people in the Excel Community, and has leveraged her talent by recording songs with a “Spreadsheet Flair”. Her songs can often be found on the Bill Jelen’s Youtube Channel.
Here are a few examples:
How Does Excel Make you FEEEEL?
It takes a special kind of person to feel passionate about Excel.
Szilvia enjoys excel because she sees it as “right down the middle between the left brain and the right brain”. It allows people who are creative and nerdy an outlet to fully explore their capabilities.
Embrace your inner nerd and your inner artist.
Throughout the episode we had a lively discussion on the role of newer capabilities with Excel. With the advent of Power Pivot, Power Query and other tools, is the normal VLookup now dead? What about the role of Modern Excel from a Business Intelligence perspective?
In the news section we announced Chandoo’s podcast. Oz also warns you about Excel 2003 no longer being supported.
