I just spent three days training a wonderful team of Excel pros who are up to their eyeballs in data.
Even though I play the role of “expert” on trips like that, I still learn new things everywhere I go. Sometimes, I learn things that I already “knew,” but didn’t really “know.” If you know what I mean.
For instance, great question this week: “Are there PowerPivot user groups? If there are, I think we would all attend.”
I talk about this all the time. SQL pros have user groups that meet on weekday evenings, and they have SQL Saturdays which almost always “sell out” (they are free). SharePoint pros have the same things – weekday user groups and SharePoint Saturdays.
So for a few years I’ve essentially been whining about this – how Excel has no equivalent community. This week’s question showed me that it’s time to just get up off the bench and get this started. The world is ready for it. PowerPivot is the reason to cut your fingernails, in Fight Club terms.
So let’s do it. Please take this short survey and we’ll see which cities are ready to get started immediately.
