12 Steps to learn Excel and become awesome @ work in 2019

Like many marketers, I have a bit of experience with Microsoft Excel. I’ve used it to organize events, plan meals, and sort data — but I don’t have nearly the advanced knowledge I wish I did.

And thanks to those limited skills, I’m constantly subjecting myself to the tedium of updating my spreadsheets manually.

Like me, you’re missing out on a world of Excel training courses that could teach me how to automate my reports and save hours of time.

When I asked even my most Excel-savvy colleagues where they picked up their knowledge, they told me things like, “I mostly learned from colleagues and friends,” or, “When I have a specific question, I ask someone or search on Google.” Fair enough. But as a beginner, I probably have a few too many Excel questions to rely on colleagues — or Google — to answer every one.

Obviously, everywhere you look this week, you find advice on how to do better this year.

Well, you don’t have to wait for a new year to become awesome at your work, any day is new year for the rest of your life.

So, today I want to share 12 steps to learn Excel and becoming awesome. But first I have a secret to confess…,

I think becoming awesome in Excel useless.

What we really want is, to become awesome in our work. Since we spend a lot of time using Excel (and other office software), knowing how to use these better can have a huge impact on how we do our work.

In that spirit, lets look at 12 steps to learn Excel so you become awesome in your work.

1. Learn everyday

Curiosity, humbleness & open mind can go a long way in making you awesome. So in order to become awesome in our work, we need to learn everyday. There is a wealth of free, useful & well designed information on net on almost any topic. For Excel, I suggest going thru our archives, category pages on Excel, Charting, Quick Tips, or the Learn any area of Excel page.

For more specific focus, check out Excel Beginner or Advanced Excel pages too.

2. Volunteer & Improve something at your work

No matter how good something is, there is always scope for improvement.  I am sure you have similar situation at your work. So pick up any single process, report, model or procedure & improve it using readily available tools like Excel. It is one of the easiest ways to learn Excel. For example, you could improve the financial dashboard that gets emailed every month or track your training (L&D) better.

3. Help a colleague

The funny thing with knowledge is that, the more you share it, the more you gain. No wonder, when we think of very knowledgeable persons, we imagine teachers & authors. And in any workplace, your knowledge determines how awesome you can be.

So go ahead and help a colleague in need. Share what you know and see the magic.

4. Join a forum & solve a problem

Forums are a great place to find new problems & challenge yourself. Go ahead and contribute in a forum that focuses on your area of work. For Excel, I suggest checking out Forums.

You will learn new things & the best part is, you are going to help a total stranger. The sense of satisfaction you get is unmatched.

5. Get a book

Despite the amount of information & variety available online, books continue to have a sense of magic. The moment you open a book, your mind opens a new world. So go ahead and indulge in a book or two this year. Learn something & then apply it to your work. See how far you can go.

For Excel & related books

6. Participate in a Contest

Contests are a great way to learn new things, experiment & win something cool. While finding a contest for your exact work area might be difficult, you can find several contests on Excel & other common office software. I am planning to run a few contests this year and I encourage you to participate in at least one of them.

7. Play with an unknown feature

Many of us continue to use software, tools without questioning our practices. For example, despite using Excel quite a bit, I rarely use Review Ribbon. I don’t know many of the things in there. I am sure you too have such gaps. This year, pick one such thing and play with it. Learn what you can do with that feature, do a bit of research, and if possible share your knowledge with people in your work life. If you are not sure what to pick, may I suggest Power Query? It is an incredible tool packed right inside Excel. Check out this intro and get started.

8. Replicate an idea from other industry to your work

Despite all the negativity in the world, we continue to see shining examples of innovation, hope & prosperity. Often, these are simple ideas implemented with finesse. You too can watch elsewhere for inspiration & copy the ideas to your work. For example, you can watch New York Times for interesting visualizations and copy the ideas for your weekly report. Or you can subscribe to blogs in a different industry so that you can get fresh ideas.

Related: Visualization projects.

9. Join a Newsletter or Subscribe to a Blog

While learning from other industries can give you new ideas, learning about your own industry increases your knowledge. So go ahead and join a newsletter or subscribe to a blog. Consume their content regularly and apply these ideas to your work.

For Excel users, I recommend joining our newsletter, Debra’s blog, Excel Jet or any site featured in our Excel links.

10. Jump to YouTube

YouTube continues to be a great way to learn new things. You can find instructional videos on any topic & learn from bite-sized clips.

For Excel users, check out our YouTube channel, ExcelisFun, MrExcel Podcast, Debra’s channel

11. Join a Training Program

One of the best ways to learn & become awesome is to join a class. So this year, invest in a training program that helps you in your work.

To learn Excel & how to use it for your work, I recommend our Excel School, VBA Class programs.

12. Believe that you are Awesome

One of my favorite quotes is,

Whatever human mind can conceive, it can achieve.

Napoleon Hill (in his book Think & Grow Rich)

So the most important aspect of becoming awesome is to believe you are awesome. No books, videos, blogs or contests can make you awesome if you don’t believe that you can be awesome.

Those are my 12 steps to learn Excel & become awesome, what about yours?

So those are my 12 ways to become awesome. What about yours? How are you planning to be awesome this year? Please share using comments.

Comprehensive learning platform Simpliv has plans of extending knowledge to over 15,000 new learners every month

Fremont, CA: Simpliv LLC, a comprehensive knowledge platform, has chalked up a plan to enroll more than 15,000 new learners every month. Sensing the surging demand for industry-relevant courses in many areas, Simpliv has embarked upon its aim of reaching out to the fast growing community of learners across nearly all age demographics and in almost all parts of the world.

hypnosis

Its courses, offered in both the IT and non-IT areas, cut across the barriers of age, location and knowledge levels. Being a global player, Simpliv is confident that it can meet the rising global demand for online courses. Its courses are essentially aimed at closing learning gaps that many learners face around the world.  These are some of the areas in which Simpliv will seek more learners for its online and video lesson courses:

Shahanshah Manzoor, Managing Director of Fremont, CA-based Simpliv LLC, believes that this is a very realistic figure to achieve in the coming months, and is optimistic that the figures will grow in the coming years, as the global learning community moves more proactively into online learning. “As the world shifts toward Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC) at a rapid rate, the field is now open to those companies that can cater to this huge growing demand. Our strengths are our understanding of this space, our set of experts who are very well-versed in the topics of interest to learners, our pricing, and, most importantly, our relevance to the industry. As the world moves towards professions that require skilling, we enhance their suitability to the job market in their specialization by offering courses that fulfill the exact needs of the profession.

We have found out during our research of the market that more often than not, more so in the markets of the developing world, there is a huge disparity between what students learn at school or college and what they face in the real world when they start working. Our extremely competitively priced courses help learners bridge this gap and help them stay abreast of the latest trends, techniques and methodologies in the market”, he said.

A platform for all kinds of courses

Having said this, Mr. Manzoor says, the field is wide open to nontechnical courses as well. “We have seen that informal learners, with or without any particular educational background, are in need of courses that help them finesse their extracurricular skills, in areas such as painting, digital photography, presentation or communication skills, meditation, acupuncture and many others. We have a huge collection of courses for such learners too, on our platform”. The aim of offering this variety of courses on its learning platform is, says Mr. Manzoor, to be a hub for learning for everyone on this planet, adding that he aims to make his company a source that learners from around the world will come to. He plans to brand Simpliv as a platform that learners will trust to deliver the most relevant, timely and valuable courses rather than simply as a money-spinning business. Simpliv’s intention is to stay for the long run in this market and earn a reputation as a knowledge platform that learners across the globe will find reliable and trustworthy.

Versatile teaching mediums

Towards achieving this objective, Simpliv offers a rare combination: of both the virtual classroom, as well as video streaming mediums, a first in the industry. While knowledge platforms offer either the virtual medium or video courses, Simpliv offers a unique mix of the two. While the short duration courses are aimed at helping learners to gain the knowledge needed to finesse their knowledge and close gaps in their learning; the high definition video lessons are aimed at working professionals and other groups who want a more detailed understanding of their topics of interest. Usually, these courses are scheduled at the weekends to suit learners’ convenience.

Exceptional refund policy

Another of the aspects at which Simpliv LLC excels is in its refund policy. Its 20-day refund policy, which is aimed at offering better service to its customers, is one of the best in the industry.

2000+courses and growing…

A major factor that gives Simpliv the confidence that it can scale up to being a global player of significance is that it in the short span of a little over a year since its inception, it has enlisted more than 2000 courses on its platform. Learners can look to Simpliv to offer courses that are as varied as one can think of. It is confident that its collection of courses will continue to grow at a rapid rate in the months and years to come, until it can be a platform for virtually every course that one wants to learn.

Several happy learners

The ultimate certificate it can earn, Simpliv believes, is the testimonials from its learners. Its learners have not been hesitant to speak highly of the value they have been deriving from the courses. A small sample of these testimonials:

Anand Kumar Verma, who undertook a Hadoop database course, gave it five stars, calling it “(A) must have course for better understanding of Hadoop concept”.

Dennis Immanuel Datudey, who took up a course on payroll management, is more than happy to give the course five stars. In his words, it was a “Very well pointed lesson about payroll management”.

Top 10 Technology Trends of 2018

2017 became the Year of Intelligence: the advance of technological achievements has triggered exciting and unexpected trends with wider impact horizons and very promising business prospects. This year we expect drastic exponential changes in every technological direction. Machine learning and artificial intelligence will transform the entire industries, making way for virtual helpers and a myriad of cases for automatization. The Internet of Things (IoT) will become more intelligent, uncovering a huge potential for smart homes and smart cities. A more efficient human-machine interaction will become established with the natural language replacing specific commands.

In this article, we will focus on the modern trends that took off well on the market by the end of 2017 and discuss the major breakthroughs expected in 2018.

1. Artificial intelligence will reshape the business strategies

AI brings enormous changes to business operations, reshaping entire industries with the power of advanced technologies and software. Some companies now acknowledge the value of implementing the AI strategies for their business, and a major leap towards AI is on the way. Large companies with over 100,000 employees are more likely to implement the AI strategies, but for them, this process can be especially challenging. 2018 will be the year when the leading firms will incorporate AI applications into their strategic and organizational development. Additionally, there is a potential for algorithms marketplaces, where the best solutions created by engineers or companies can be shared, bought, and deployed for organizations’ individual use.

Brave ideas that used to be hard to believe, are becoming real. The constant development of machine learning and AI technologies will make every business become data-driven, and every industry smarter. After years of background work on prototypes and ideas, the new solutions will be breathtaking. Virtual assistance for patients, computational drug discovery, and genetics research give a glimpse of the amazing use cases in medicine. Many more applications for automation, robotization, and data management in different industries will bring significant changes. Healthcare, construction, banking, finance, manufacturing — every existing industry will be reshaped.

Top 10 Technology Trends of 2018a

2. Blockchain will reveal new opportunities in different industries

Everyone is now talking about blockchain, a revolutionary decentralized technology that stores and exchanges data for cryptocurrencies. It forms a distributed database with a digital register of the transactions and contracts. Blockchain stores an ever-growing list of ordered records called blocks, each containing a timestamp and a link to the previous block. Blockchain has impressive prospects in the field of digital transactions which will open new business opportunities in 2018.

This technology also uncovers many new possibilities with various applications in various other fields. Due to the growing role of social responsibility and security on the internet, the blockchain technologies are becoming increasingly relevant. In a system using blockchain, it is nearly impossible to forge any digital transactions, so the credibility of such systems will surely strengthen. This approach can become fundamental for disruptive digital business in enterprises and startups. Companies, previously operating offline, will be able to translate the processes into the digital environment completely.

Business needs to account for the blockchain risks and opportunities and analyze how this technology can influence the customer behavior. As the initial hype around blockchain in the financial services’ industry will slow down, we will see many more potential use cases for the government, healthcare, manufacturing, and other industries. For example, blockchain strongly influences the intellectual property management and opens new insights in protection from copyright infringement. Some websites like Blockai, Pixsy, Mediachain, and Proof of Existence intend to apply the blockchain technology for this purpose.

3. New approaches to privacy and security are coming

The technological development boosts the importance of data, so hacking techniques become ever more progressive. The increase in numbers of devices connected to the internet creates more data but also makes it more vulnerable and less protected. IoT gadgets are getting more popular and widely used, yet they remain extremely insecure in terms of the data privacy. Any large enterprises are constantly under threat of hack attacks, as it happened with Uber and Verizon in 2017.

Luckily, the solutions are achievable, and this year we will see great improvements in the data protection services. Machine learning will be the most significant security trend establishing a probabilistic, predictive approach to ensuring data security. Implementing techniques like behavioral analysis enables detecting and stopping an attack capable of bypassing the static protective systems. Blockchain brought our attention to a new technology called Zero Knowledge Proof which will further develop in 2018 enabling transactions that secure users’ privacy using mathematics. Another new approach to safety is known as CARTA (Continuous adaptive risk and trust assessment). It is based on a continuous evaluation of the potential risks and the degree of trust, adapting to every situation. This applies to all business participants: from the company’s developers to partners. Although our security is still vulnerable, there are promising solutions that can bring better privacy into our lives.

4. The Internet of Things will become intelligent

The intelligent things are everyday devices capable of smarter interactions with people and the environment. These things operate either semi-autonomously or autonomously in uncontrolled real-world conditions without the need for human intervention.

Intelligent things have been in a spotlight for several years, and with a continuous expansion and enhancement in 2018 they will influence another global trend — the Internet of Things.

A network of collaborative intelligent things will be created where multiple devices will work together developing IoT to its full potential. Connected to the global web and combined via wired and wireless communication channels, things will turn into a one big integrated system driving a major shift in the human-machine interaction. The fusion of artificial intelligence with the Internet of things brings about new amazing technologies to create smart homes and cities.

5. Deep learning will be faster and data collection better

Nowadays, deep learning faces certain challenges associated with the data collection and the complexity of the computations. Innovations in hardware are now being developed to speed up the deep learning experiments, e.g. the new GPUs with a greater number of cores and a different form of architecture. According to Marc Edgar, a Senior Information Scientist at the GE Research, deep training will shorten the development time of software solutions from several months to several days within the next 3-5 years. This will improve the functional characteristics, increase productivity, and reduce product costs.

Currently, most large firms realize the importance of data collection and its influence on the business effectiveness. In the coming year, companies will start using even more data, and the success will depend on the ability to combine the disparate data. In 2018, companies will collect customer data via CRM, ticket systems, BMP and DMP, as well as the omnichannel platforms. The popularity of collecting data on specialized sensors like LIDAR is also on the rise. Integrating the existing systems with all types of client data into a single information pool will definitely be on trend. Startups will continue to create new methods for gathering and using data, further reducing the costs.

6. AI will refine auto constructing and tuning of models

Top 10 Technology Trends of 2018b

Since Google’s launch of AutoML last year, use of the AI tools to accelerate the process of constructing and tuning models is rapidly gaining popularity. This new approach to AI development allows automating the design of machine learning models and enables the construction of models without human input with one AI becoming the architect of another.

This year, experts expect growth in popularity of the commercial AutoML packages and integration of AutoML into large machine learning platforms.

After AutoML, a computer vision algorithm called NASNet was built to recognize objects in video streams in real time. The “reinforcement learning” on NASNet implemented with AutoML can train the model without humans showing better results when compared to the algorithms that require human input.

These developments significantly broaden the horizons for machine learning and will completely reshape the approach to model construction in the next years.

7. The CDO role will grow extensively

The Chief Data Officers (CDOs) and other senior data professionals are getting more involved in the top management of large organizations changing their approach to data management. CDOs are the driving force behind the innovation and differentiation: they revolutionize the existing business models, improve the corporate communication with the target audience, and explore new opportunities to improve the business performance. Although this position is quite new, it is getting mainstream. According to Gartner, by 2019 CDO positions will be present in 90% of large organizations, but only half of them will actually succeed. Strong personal qualities, understanding of the responsibilities and potential obstacles are considered crucial to achieving success, yet there is another important step to unlock the full CDO’s potential. Firms should consider branching the IT department into the “I” and “T” separately, and CDOs should take the lead in the new group responsible for the information management.

8. The debates on ethics will flare up

As the AI industry makes significant progress in performing various tasks and actions in the everyday life, questions are raised regarding ethics, responsibilities, and human engagement. Who will be to blame if an artificial intelligence unit performs an illegal act? Do AI bots need any regulations? Will they be able to take over all the human jobs?

The first two questions assume that one day a bot will be legally recognized as a person and could take responsibility or be punished for their actions. Although this perspective is still years away, the debates around ethics are heating up already. Considering different possibilities, scientists are trying to find a compromise regarding the bots’ rights and responsibilities.

However, the possibility that robots will take all the workplaces is actually close to zero. Of course, the AI industry is developing extremely fast, but it is still pretty much in its infancy. 2018 promises to take the hype around this question down. Once we dive deeper into this subject, understand how to interact with the AI, and get used to it, the myth about robots taking over will surely be dispelled.

9. No more specific commands: growing of NLP

Use of chatbots in customer service became one of the leading trends of the outgoing year. In 2018 applications will require the ability to recognize the little nuances of our speech. The users want to get a response from their software by asking questions and giving commands in their natural language without thinking about the “right” way to ask. The development of NLP and its integration into computer programs will be one of the most exciting challenges of the 2018 year. We have high expectations about this.

What seems as a simple task for a human — to understand the tone of speech, the emotional coloring, and the double meaning — can be a difficult task for a computer accustomed to understanding the language of specific commands. These complex algorithms require many steps of predictions and computations, all occurring in the cloud within a split-second. With the help of NLP, people will be able to ask more questions, receive apposite answers and obtain better insights on their problems.

Top 10 Technology Trends of 2018c

10. Self-teaching AI will be more confident without the human data

Since the invention of the first artificial intelligence, the future in this field approaches faster than we expect. Experts were predicting that the AI would beat humans in the Go game by 2027. But it happened 10 years earlier — in 2017. It took only 40 days for the algorithm AlphaGo Zero to become the best Go player in the history of mankind. It was teaching itself without the input of any human data and developed strategies impossible for human players.

Next year the race for the creation of a developed, self-taught artificial intelligence will only continue. We look forward to the AI breakthrough in solving many human routines: decision-making, developing businesses and scientific models, recognition of objects, emotions, and speeches, and reinventing the customer experience. Also, we expect that AI will be able to cope with these tasks better, faster, and cheaper than people. The capability of algorithms for self-learning brings us closer to implementing the AI into many areas of human life.

Conclusions

To conclude, the year 2018 will bring great progress in technological innovations. We will witness faster and more accurate Machine Learning and AI applications and some new exciting developments. The exponential improvement of technologies like the Internet of Things, NLP, and self-teaching AI will change every business industry and our everyday lives. Although this can create a certain threat to the data security, the new approaches and solutions are continuously evolving. The changes will be streamlined and the outcomes are sure to be amazing.

The above list of trends is not definitive, please share your ideas about the main technology tendencies for this year in the comment section below. More

Design Patterns – 24 That Matter – In Java

Design Patterns - 24 That Matter - In Java.jpg

  • Prerequisites: Basic understanding of Java
  • Taught by a Stanford-educated, ex-Googler, husband-wife team
  • More than 50 real-world examples

This is an intensely practical, deeply thoughtful, and quirky take on 24 Design Patterns that matter.

Let’s parse that.

  • The course is intensely practical, bursting with examples – the more important patterns have 3-6 examples each. More than 50 real-world Java examples in total
  • The course is deeply thoughtful, and it will coax and cajole you into thinking about the irreducible core of an idea – in the context of other patterns, overall programming idioms and evolution in usage
  • The course is also quirky. The examples are irreverent. Lots of little touches: repetition, zooming out so we remember the big picture, active learning with plenty of quizzes. There’s also a peppy soundtrack, and art – all shown by studies to improve cognition and recall
  • Lastly, the patterns matter because each of these 24 is a canonical solution to recurring problems

What’s Covered:

  • Decorator, Factory, Abstract Factory, Strategy, Singleton, Adapter, Facade, Template, Iterator, MVC, Observer, Command, Composite, Builder, Chain of Responsibility, Memento, Visitor, State, Flyweight, Bridge, Mediator, Prototype, Proxy, Double-Checked Locking and Dependency Injection
  • The only GoF pattern not covered is the Interpreter pattern, which we felt was too specialized and too far from today’s programming idiom; instead we include an increasingly important non-GoF pattern, Dependency Injection
  • Examples: Java Filestreams, Reflection, XML specification of UIs, Database handlers, Comparators, Document Auto-summarization, Python Iterator classes, Tables and Charts, Threading, Media players, Lambda functions, Menus, Undo/Redo functionality, Animations, SQL Query Builders, Exception handling, Activity Logging, Immutability of Strings, Remote Method Invocation, Serializable and Cloneable, networking
  • Dependency Inversion, Demeter’s Law, the Open-Closed Principle, loose and tight coupling, the differences between frameworks, libraries and design patterns

Learn Java Programming.jpg

  • Taught by a Stanford-educated, ex-Googler, husband-wife team
  • This course will use Java and an Integrated Development Environment (IDE). Never fear, we have a detailed video on how to get this downloaded and set up.
  • Hundreds of lines of source code, and hundreds of lines of comments – just download and open in your IDE!

A Java course for everyone – accessible yet serious, to take you from absolute beginner to an early intermediate level

Let’s parse that.

  • This is a Java course for everyone. Whether you are a complete beginner (a liberal arts major, an accountant, doctor, lawyer) or an engineer with some programming experience but looking to learn Java – this course is right for you.
  • The course is accessible because it assumes absolutely no programming knowledge, and quickly builds up using first principles alone
  • Even so, this is a serious Java programming class – the gradient is quite steep, and you will go from absolute beginner to an early intermediate level
  • The course is also quirky. The examples are irreverent. Lots of little touches: repetition, zooming out so we remember the big picture, active learning with plenty of quizzes. There’s also a peppy soundtrack, and art – all shown by studies to improve cognition and recall.
