Get Ready for Spreadsheet Day 2016

In exactly one week, on Monday October 17th, it will be Spreadsheet Day 2016. We’ll be celebrating on a Monday this year, so maybe you can turn it into a long weekend.

The Spreadsheet Cake

Last year, Albert Kroes had a beautiful spreadsheet cake made, in honour of the occasion. The people in his department at work really enjoyed it, and I’m glad he sent me a photo that I could share.

The date on the cake, October 17, 1979, is when VisiCalc was first released, and that’s why we celebrate Spreadsheet Day on October 17th each year.
