Every day, millions of knowledgeable workers head into the office and open up a spreadsheet, a workbook, or a series of workbooks to accomplish routine tasks. These tasks take time. They can be repetitive and sometimes even downright boring. So in the 21st century, when most routine tasks can be automated, what’s a better way? Chris Cardillo, Data Scientist at DataCamp, challenges anyone spending their days in and out of spreadsheets to pick up a coding language. He covers the tangible benefits of incorporating code into an everyday workflow, as well as examples of where code enhances or replaces work done in spreadsheets. Finally, he covers some R language equivalents for spreadsheet techniques and how to get started when you’re ready to take the first step.
