My first blog, Chicago and Bye Bye Excel IL

Earlier this year, I published my first blog post on here. It was a big step for me as a new blogger, and Rob and Avi were very kind to let me run my stunt on their awesome blog.

The blog post described how to use Power Query to import data from Linkedin. It walked you through the import & transformation steps for a dashboard that provides cool competitive analysis insights. Read more here.

I was at the Microsoft Ignite conference in Chicago when that first blog post was published on PowerPivotPro. I mention Chicago, because this city is going to play a crucial role in my life.

Two months after the Chicago conference, I had decided to start my own blog on TechNet (here), and got a perfect excuse to blog again about my previous Linkedin post as PowerPivotPro mentioned my post as the #6 fastest post to receive 1000 views (here).

Next week I am about to leave the amazing Excel team at Microsoft Israel, and will move to Chicago to start new adventures. I have decided to continue my blogging here on Data Chant, and will gradually copy and polish some of my old stuff from TechNet as well.

For all my friends in Excel, and Power BI, keep on the amazing work. I am proud of our combined achievements on Excel 2016, and will surely miss you.

Stay tuned for lots of new great stuff. Next blog will be from Chicago.
