Microsoft Excel MVP & Founder & COO at Excel.tv
Jordan Goldmeier is an internationally recognized data scientist and visualization expert, author, and keynote speaker. He is an Excel MVP and specializes in VBA, Dashboards and Data Visualization.
He believes that there are three pillars to high-quality Excel development:
a) Good developing practices like using proper variable names, minimizing expensive Excel operations, minimizing volatile functions.
b) Good data visualization. This means avoiding extravagant that might impress management but are ultimately meaningless. Focus on letting the data speak for itself.
c) Thinking outside the cell – this is like thinking outside the box for better solutions.
