Learn VBA - New workshop!
VBA (Visual Basic for Applications) is a computer language that lets ordinary users automate Office applications. You can record macros, perform a repetitive action, automate a workflow, or even build an entirely new application using VBA.
This workshop is for people who have little to no experience with programming computers, but have some familiarity an Office application. We’re not going to make you a computer programming expert. This is an introductory level workshop. We think you will be able to use VBA to accomplish simple, useful actions after attending this workshop. Some attendees will quickly advance to a higher skill level on their own.
