Description:

Do you feel like you're not a "technical" person? Have you been curious about what the hype around coding is all about and how it can actually make your work easier? The purpose of this presentation is to share my story of combatting imposter syndrome (we can all be "technical"!) and to provide a real-world work scenario to showcase how using Python can solve reporting challenges. This presentation is ideal for people who often create Excel reports for work, have little or no experience with programming, and are curious about expanding their skillset and knowledge on this subject.
