So how did your weekend go?

My Bike Route - Plan vs. ActualRecently I bought a bicycle. Naturally, outdoor biking has become my primary fitness activity now. So, I went to Google Maps on Sunday morning and found a nice route of 14 kilometers. So I set out on my bike.

Barely a kilometer on that route, I found myself at a cul-de-sac. So I asked a passer by how do I get to “Rampuram“, the place where my route would merge with a state high-way. He vaguely pointed to the left and told me to go right. And right I went, thru what I can call as a walking trial (and what Google tells me as a major road). After biking for a few more minutes, I ended up at an over bridge. And this is where I trusted my gut and took left. And I kept riding on a steep road. I saw 1-2 villages whose names I did not recognize. So I told myself, yeah, this must be the right route. And then, I came to an intersection that looked very familiar. And guess what?, I took a wrong turn and I ended up doing a shorter route. I rode back on the highway to home as it was getting too hot and too late.

But then the weekend ended on a brighter note as we watched a couple of good movies and played with kids.

How was your weekend?

Why did you tell me about the biking story?

Today, we have no excel post. Instead, I am going to ask you to fill-up a survey. And I realized, people always help whenever I lost my way. So…, 😛

Are you interested in online VBA Classes?

Many of you have emailed and asked me, “Chandoo, can you help us learn VBA too? Just like you do with Excel.”

VBAClasses.com - Learn VBA / Macros onlineWell, as flattering as those requests were, the fact is, I was lousy at VBA. Well, I used to be very good at Visual Basic, back in the college days. But my programming skills have rusted over the years as I did very little coding. I guess, I have become a business-guy. So it took me time to re-learn VBA. And now, I am happy to announce that We are ready to start our very first batch of VBA Class.

We even have an awesome domain for the classes – VBAClasses.com. (Dont go there yet, it is still blank.)

But, before we start, I need some help from you. I want to know what is it that you want to learn, so that we can design the course curriculum & methodology around your needs.

So please take a few minutes and complete this survey:

Thank you very much.

Thank you so much for your time. I promise that next time, I will tell a more exciting biking story. May be I will find a unicorn or double rainbow. Or, I can just throw in a VBA tip to make it worthwhile.

    Very exciting! I hope this turns into as valuable a resource as the Excel content.

    I must recommend "My Tracks"!

    My Tracks is an application for your AndroidTM phone that enables you to record GPS tracks and view live statistics – such as time, speed, distance, and elevation – while hiking, biking, running or participating in other outdoor activities. Once recorded, you can share your tracks, upload them to Google Spreadsheets and visualize them on Google My Maps.

    I cant see the survey as online spreadsheets are blocked on my system.

    I would like to learn first basic coding of macro's & then moving to expert level how to exploit macro for own use.
