The first Excelapalooza featured the tagline ‘become an Excel rock star.’ This year, we’re featuring the real deal in Purna Duggirala.

BizNet Software, Inc., today announced that the creator of the incredibly popular website will present a three-hour hands-on workshop and a pair of tutorial sessions at its Third Annual Microsoft Excel user and training conference, “Excelapalooza,” September 21 to 24.

Purna Duggirala, a Microsoft MVP (Most Valuable Professional), launched using his nickname in 2004 and made it his full-time livelihood in 2010. He calls himself CEO – Chief Excel Officer – and says, “At, our goal is simple. We want you to become awesome in Excel.”

The site is a treasure trove of Excel information, with much of the content free for the downloading. E-mail and RSS subscribers also get two or three articles each week containing Excel tips or charting tutorials.

“With 1.65 million unique views each month and an estimated 75,000 members, illustrates just how hungry users worldwide are for quality training, tips and tricks, and discussions about Excel,” said Eric Eager, Vice President of BizNet Software. “The first Excelapalooza featured the tagline ‘become an Excel rock star.’ This year, we’re featuring the real deal in Purna Duggirala.”

The highlight will be Chandoo’s three-hour hands-on workshop, “Come, Design an Excel Dashboard in an Afternoon.” The session will feature a case study and sample data, with attendees designing their own dashboards on personal machines. Pre-registration is required for what will almost certainly be a standing-room-only event. Two more sessions are also on the agenda: “How to Select the Right Charts for your Data,” and “10 Mistakes to Avoid When Making Dashboards.”

The Third Annual Excelapalooza is scheduled Sept. 21 to 24 at the Four Seasons Resort and Club Dallas in Las Colinas, Texas. Registration is now open at The cost is $1,450 until August 22.
