Sorting values in Olympic Medal Table style [Quick Tip]

It is Olympic season. Everyone I know is tracking the games and checking their country’s performance. One thing that we notice when looking at medal tally is,

A single Gold medal is worth more than any number of Silver medals. Like wise, a single Silver medal is worth more than any number of Bronze medals.

So, when you look at the ranking of countries, you see countries with single Gold medal higher up than countries with lots of Silver and Bronze medals (but no Gold).

    Just finished my talk. It was a good experience. 7 attendees in all their glory devoured my talk 🙂

  2. Hui says:

    Its a Very Nice Card, Chandoo.

  3. paresh shah says:

    The subject is not that popular as yet in India hence the attendance figure. We need a few more blogs here discussing the subject.

    Welcome Sir,

    If you have time plz buzz me at 95xxxxxx09

  5. Pedro says:

    Surely the video presentation will be more audience in your blog!
    I'm waiting impatiently to see it here.

    @Paresh... Agree. That plus very few attendees were aware of the MVP sessions. But I am here more to meet other MVPs and MS folks. After becoming mvp in 2009, this is the first time I am attending any community event. So it is a cool experience. (Also, I got to play with some of the cool new ms technologies like surface...)

    @Pedro... It will be a presentation along with my usual rants. There was no video recording.

    @Saurabh.. thank you...

    @Hui.. Thanks..

    Well............there's always the time when attendance is not to the mark. I remember my day when I was giving a seminar on Employee Involvement. But....it's more important that the folks who came had a good time and found value. When that's achieved.............mission accomplished. Can you post your presentation?

  8. Chandoo says:

    @Ninad... thanks. The presentation along with a detailed post explaining chart selection process will be up next week.
