Excel in Excel

Hi all, thanks for tuning in. So, I spent the last week migrating over our internal reporting and metrics SaaS offering from Excel to, at first, R, then Python. There is some pride in the fact that the workflow eventually shifted from Excel- to Python-intensive. I like to think that my Excel-bonded peers are living vicariously through me in this respect.

What remains to be seen is how I will manage to not only clean the data but also transfer the algorithm-specific knowledge I worked through R with to Python. Thus far, I have found DataCamp’s Python for R Users course invaluable for the learning curve. The process has been a wonderful opportunity for product management exposure and I am looking forward to what comes next!
