Aberdeen Python User Group April 2021
A monthly meeting of the Aberdeen Python user community. A talk or two then a practical session of using Python in small teams.
This month we have a special guest speaker: Tony Roberts of PyXLL
Writing Excel Add-ins in Python
Learn how to integrate Python into Microsoft Excel and write Excel add-ins in Python with the PyXLL Excel add-in.
In this talk we will look at how and why to write Excel add-ins in Python and some common use cases. We will also look at writing Excel worksheet functions (User Defined Functions) and macros, using Jupyter notebooks embedded in Excel, and how we can use Pandas to make spreadsheets simpler.
