Hi there,

Honestly, the way I mostly learn these sorts of things is to "invent" projects! Get a random public dataset (for example, nyc open data) and start making some charts around an imagined pitch/researhc. No better way to learn!

This class also looks promising:

Hi,

Have a look at their website as well as YouTube videos. There are a lot of interesting ones over there.

Also, try to do projects you've worked on in the past while using thinkcell.

Best,

Hi,

In my understanding Thinkcell usually provide only some basic graph. However, the company that buy thinkcell need to setup their own templates / toolbox. As such, the potential of Thinkcell will depends on on each companies.

Best,

Hi,

Thinkcell is a PowerPoint add-in that helps you build different types of charts faster than without it. So the question is whether you work with PPP in general or not.

The best way you'll learn real-world hacks is from someone who uses it daily perhaps friends in consulting. They'll be able to show you the various tricks.

Also there's a fairly active forum on Chandoo
