Hey guys.... just finished reading Medium this morning and felt like sharing. There’s currently a new revolution by tech giants now regarding content learning. Please guys try visiting Grow with Google


Welcome back Ejiod. Thank you for the link

We have been waiting for your response on some discussions. Specifically on how Python is better than Excel Power Tools and Power BI in the work place.

Python is on Champions League while PowerBI and Tableau are on Europa League.
Excel is like AC Milan of Seria A

For basic level analysis Excel is good. Not everyone understands python and rigorous path in becoming fully fledged in it. Python runs deep analysis than you would with other tools. But imagine your boss tells you to send list of customers to team leads, are you gonna be using Python...., or you were asked to do referencing shey you will call python or power bi to the rescue.. definitely NO.., Excel comes in.
For visualization just throw EXCEL to trash can! Tableau and PowerBI are boss once it comes to visualization. Infact analysis these 2 comes ahead of Excel. To automate report sending that’s when you even call Tableau and Power BI. For me the only time I use Excel is if I’m doing XLOOKUP or after exporting from powerBi or Tableau.
I only use python when I wanna do advanced analytics or machine learning. Funny enough machine learning model are now integrated to these tools. Excel is cool but if you wanna be taken serious please drown yourself in Python,Tableau/PowerBI and SQL.


P.S
PowerBI and Tableau are on Champions League. See teams below.

R now is on Europa League
Excel still playing Seria A

I use Python to mainly clean up my data to a format I want, save the file and plot whatever I want with Tableau and PowerBI. Python is still the best analysis tool, IMO.

Okay, thank you so much for this response.

First when i said Excel, I meant Excel in combination with Power BI as power BI is an extension of Excel as the come from the same source.

The reason I asked was as i was working on an analysis project (Sales Data) using python.

I noticed that most of the operations were similar to what you would do using Excel Power Query and Data Model.

Things like dropping Null values, adding columns can be done using Dax function in Power BI. I saw so many similarities especially in the pre-processing stage

Nice. Anyway of downloading the videos for offline use?

Modified: got it, service avialiable on the app.

You can only save it offline on the app. It's quite impossible to save it to your desktop.

I was invited too. But because of distance, I won't be making the journey. Do well to keep us posted.

I'm sceptical about the prospect of the company too.

after doing that, go to the website where you want to download the Torrent file. click on the file you want, then click on "get this torrent". it should automatically launch the uTorrent or bittorrent app and start the download.

give feedback once you give it a try.

I use Udeler to download my Udemy courses on my Laptop. And you can get torrent files from Freeturialsusa.com then use uTorrent or BitTorrent to download them.

In other words, it's better to download the courses on freetutorialsus.com using either uTorrent, BitTorrent or Udeler, instead of a conventional browser like chrome, right?
