Hi,

I have quite a few years experience with VBA and have developed various dashboards and tools using APIs and web scraping etc.

I'm looking to further increase my skills and wondered if anyone had any cool project ideas. I really don't mind what it is. I'm particularly interested in getting more familiar with vba classes and creating dll's to use in VBA.

Any ideas appreciated.

Thanks.

Hi Shadow,

that's a good one. I had the same challenge a couple of years ago but decided to dive into some VBA skills I was missing instead of DLL/classes. So I tought myself version control / git and combined my project with git to get some version control. That was pretty cool to learn, see my project here (no classes yet): https://github.com/krijnsent/

I'm looking at what projects I have some base code for and found a map chart in Excel. Pulling in coordinate files to draw maps, drawing it and linking it to data in a sheet. There are some options in Excel right now, but not e.g. a circle chart on maps (like: https://alesandrab.wordpress.com/2013/02/19/create-a-bubble-pie-chart-or-world-map-pie-chart-using-vba-and-excel-charts/ ). Another idea buzzing in my mind is a QR code maker in Excel.

Cheers,

Koen
