What we’ll do

Presenter: Josh Peak

What started as a fun spreadsheet of tracking his weight lifting progress in his garage gym, quickly turned into a personalised dashboard requiring cloud integrations.

A Google Sheet dashboard that integrates Google Colab Python notebooks, custom Google Sheet functions, a MongoDB database, Heroku instances and scraping data from the Strava API.

Come on a ridiculous journey of “The Over Engineered Spreadsheet” and learn about things you probably never thought could be done and push your own boundaries of curiosity.
