DBM Students Attend Digifest 2017

This blog post is written by Tremaine Gordon on behalf of the group of students who attended Digifest.

WØRK.  LΣΛRN.  PLΔY.

Work. Learn. Play.  the theme that set the tone at this year’s DIGIFEST in 2017. It was also your daily itinerary. Your morning started off with Coffee and announcements, and then straight to work.  The Keynotes began almost immediately, and the audience started preparing questions. At each break you would get the chance to try out some tech hardware.  The Corus Quay Urban Tavern building itself had a mix of offices, innovative design, and even a slide. Each speaker gave a creative and informative presentation about something innovative happening somewhere around the world. We really enjoyed Cory Timpson’s talk about digital Storytelling at the Canadian Museum of Human Rights in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

The breaks gave everyone a chance to speak to people, and learn about some of the  creative displays (Mostly game developers and and virtual simulators). We took the time to get a photo-op with the banner on the main stage.

There were two speakers that really left the floor full of questions.

Andrew Lo Ah Kee from Godaddy, gave us an E-commerce perspective from 125 countries around the world. It concluded with him explaining that Toronto is the city of innovators, and entrepreneurs; and it’s known world wide.

"Toronto is a case study for the whole world.."

Satish Kanwar from Shopify spoke about synergy in the workplace and why a team of teams linked by one vision is the best possible work environment.


"Be a broken record with your vision, 
and create a team of teams that share that vision.."

We were able to speak with Satish after his presentation, and ask about the inner workings of Shopify.

Digifest 2017 was a fun experience that everyone could benefit from attending next year. It also gave the students a real feel for what to expect from the Digital Business Industry.

Workshop Content: Microsoft® Office Excel® 2013 Part 2 (Intermediate) 

Overview: 

Whether you need to crunch numbers for sales, inventory, information technology, human resources, or other organizational purposes and departments, the ability to get the right information to the right people at the right time can create a powerful competitive advantage. After all, the world runs on data more than ever before and that’s a trend not likely to change, or even slow down, any time soon. But with so much data available and being created on a nearly constant basis, the ability to make sense of that data becomes more critical and challenging with every passing day. You already know how to get Excel to perform simple calculations and how to modify your workbooks and worksheets to make them easier to read, interpret, and present to others. But, Excel is capable of doing so much more. To gain a truly competitive edge, you need to be able to extract actionable organizational intelligence from your raw data. In other words, when you have questions about your data, you need to know how to get Excel to provide the answers for you. And that’s exactly what this course aims to help you do.

This course builds upon the foundational knowledge presented in the Microsoft® Office Excel® 2013: Part 1 (Second Edition) course and will help start you down the road to creating advanced workbooks and worksheets that can help deepen your understanding of organizational intelligence. The ability to analyze massive amounts of data, extract actionable information from it, and present that information to decision makers is at the foundation of a successful organization that is able to compete at a high level.

This course covers Microsoft Office Specialist exam objectives to help students prepare for the Excel 2013 Exam and the Excel 2013 Expert Exam.

Course Objectives:

Upon successful completion of this course, you will be able to leverage the power of data analysis and presentation in order to make informed, intelligent organizational decisions.

You will:

  • Customize the Excel environment.
  • Create advanced formulas.
  • Analyze data by using functions and conditional formatting.
  • Organize and analyze datasets and tables.
  • Visualize data by using basic charts.
  • Analyze data by using PivotTables, slicers, and PivotCharts.

Target Student: 

This course is designed for students who already have foundational knowledge and skills in Excel 2013 and who wish to begin taking advantage of some of the higher-level functionality in Excel to analyze and present data.

Prerequisites: 

To ensure success, students should have completed Microsoft® Office Excel® 2013: Part 1 or have the equivalent knowledge and experience.
