Victor Jakubiuk - DataNitro: Python offers state of the art scientific and mathematical libraries, while Microsoft Excel provides a familiar interface for tabular data. In this talk I will demonstrate how to effectively analyze data with Python and Excel using DataNitro. I will show how to programmatically handle workbooks, integrate Numpy into Excel and display Matplotlib charts in spreadsheets. Practical examples will be provided.
