Eusprig 2014 Delft – For Excel Builders and Inspectors

Thursday 3 July 2014, Delft, the Netherlands. And it’s FREE thanks to our sponsors!

This is for the two sides of the house – those who use spreadsheets to solve their problems, and those who are concerned about the risks introduced by the use of spreadsheets.

Unlike the serious keynotes of previous years, this year begins with, of all things, Excel and Music. It should start the day for us in good humour!

Both the Eusprig day and the SEMS workshop on the 2nd feature Ray Panko on spreadsheet error detection and auditing.

There is also a short demo session on the Thursday where everyone who wants to can present a little demo of their software.

And if that’s not enough, check out the Amsterdam Excel Summit on May 14th.
