Excel Bootcamp

About This Workshop

We’ve all heard of Microsoft Excel, and yet a surprising number of people have little to no experience using it. In this class — ideal for people working in business, management, or simply interested in getting more organized — you’ll learn the basics of the application, including calculation, formatting, and charts. The class will also extend beyond the simple addition of data and will put participants in a position where Excel is no longer a chore, but a powerful tool to assist in manipulating data efficiently. You’ll learn various functions to help you organize and analyze data and go through situational overviews of time-saving shortcuts to improve your efficiency dramatically. The bootcamp is designed for participants who can pick up material quickly and are looking to go from relatively little knowledge of Excel to being able to achieve complex tasks in just one day.

I went to GA Seattle WDI (Web Development Immersive) course. It changed my life. Within 1 1/2 months of graduation, I was offered a great job at a company that's considered one of the top 5 to work for in the pacific NW. Starting next week I'll be a Software Engineer making more than twice what I made in my previous career, and I enjoy the work much more. I can't heap enough praise onto the General Assembly Web Development program. Like I said, it's changed my life in ways I didn't think possible.

GA WDI has been a great decision, not only was I able to learn such an extensive knowledge of multiple languages and frameworks to build web apps, but also being a part of an awesome ever growing family. I would highly recommend GA WDI to anyone.

I loved taking the FEWD class with General Assembly. My teachers were the head developers at Nordstrom and such cool guys! In just a 10 weeks I learned how to code HTML, CSS, and intermediate JavaScript. I wish we had spent more time with GitHub but apparently all future classes are using it for every homework assignment so that's good to hear. I would recommend GA to anyone serious about learning a difficult 21st century skill like web development or user experience or digital marketing. I got so much more out of it than I feel I would have with any online course.
