The Modeller’s Miscellany #83

Full Stack Modeller open week – you’re invited!


Full Stack Modeller open week – you’re invited

Full Stack Modeller is based on a simple idea.

  1. – Gather the world’s best instructors in data analytics, financial modelling & data visualisation.
  2. – Create a vibrant community of finance professionals who are ready to help each other do their best work.
  3. – Let the magic happen.

From October 25th to 29th we’re throwing the doors open to show you what that looks like in practice. You can sample the training material, check out the community and join our live events. There’s no obligation to join but you might find that it’s the Excel modelling community you’ve been looking for. Find out more here.



The Excel tech space continues to expand. Layer is a new “Excel enhancement” app designed to streamline data entry, control, and collaboration. Check it out here.
