Data Analyst to Data Scientist: Learning Python with an Excel Mindset

Galvanize 515 E Grant St Phoenix, AZ (map)

Excel for me was my first programming language! Not VBA (although that did come into play later). Rather just painstakingly manipulating functions and formulas to get the desired spreadsheet interaction I wanted on the page. Over my career, I learned a great deal about drawing parallels between Excel and the future languages I would learn like Python. I want to share this knowledge and hopefully, encourage more to feel comfortable with stepping out of a spreadsheet and into a more feature-rich language.
