2018 DevelopExcel london

There is going to be a major, major conference on advanced Excel mischief in London on 18th October 2018.

If you are pushing the limits of VBA (or Excel) and needing more power, richer language, more speed, or just a proper IDE, then this conference could well save you a ton of time in dead ends avoided. And a ton of time in getting straight to a productive level in pretty much all the key Excel extension technologies.

Take your development to a new level, rub shoulders with the big wigs in the Excel world, heckle everyone before 16:30.

By the time you leave, you will know loads of new people, have an excellent idea about which technologies will work for you, and how to get started, or progress further in them.

Full detail are here on the site.
