UK Excel Developer conference, Wednesday 25th January 2012 London.
This one day event gathered together some of
the top Experts of commercial Excel development from the US and
Europe.The topic areas ranged from general high quality development
processes to deep dive technical comparisons of C# v C++ for Excel
The program is here.
Bear in mind this is one of the few Excel
community events, and one of the very best training events of the year.
Not to mention a stunning opportunity to socialise with fellow Excel
users and developers.
In other news our method of distributing our
commercial products is about to change. Instead of maintaining an on
line shop and going through a shopping cart process to pay and
download, for a trial period we are making the downloads available on
an honesty box basis. If you download a product and find it useful then
go here and donate some money to help us continue to develop new products and support old ones.
If enough people honour the new system we will release more products on the same basis.
Things slowed down a bit at Codematic.net in
2011, due to several large, fully absorbing projects. 2012 will see a
big step up in activity around the website and direct consulting.
The UK Excel Developer conference was held in London on Monday July the 12. The latest agenda is here.
This event is an excellent opportunity for
anyone involved in developing in and around Excel to meet fellow
professionals. The agenda is rich and varied, and there are plenty of
networking opportunities. The event will be friendly and informal.
It is one of the very few, possibly the only, organised event targeting Excel Users/developers in the UK in 2010.
New page added explaining DDE links in Excel and where to get our simple server to try them out.
Two new sections have been added to the site
to cover the areas of best practice in spreadsheet development and best
practice in the use of VBA.
Spreadsheet Design Best Practice starts here.
VBA Best Practice starts here.
These are just guidelines, things we have
found have worked well, rather than rigid LAWS that must be obeyed.
Blind application of rigid rules is one surefire way to decrease

Excel 2007. More information and a free demo version available from the
Excel 2007 Classic menu page.
