50% done – mid year updates for 2020

Hello folks. 50% of 2020 is behind us. Let me share a few updates with you all. First check out this awesome double rainbow outside our house on 30th June.


I am thrilled and humbled to tell you that I have been re-awarded Microsoft MVP for 2020 year. This is my 12th year in the MVP program and it is all possible only because of you and your continued support to Chandoo.org. Thank you.

Lock down and back to normal…

Just like many other countries around the world, New Zealand entered lock down during March 2020. These restrictions gradually eased in May & June 2020 and we are finally back to normal life here. Thanks to excellent disease management by the local authorities & government here, the lock down was sharp, quick and effective.

I hope you are staying safe and healthy.

Power BI Play Date – July 2nd week

The next batch of Power BI Play Date is coming soon. I have originally planned to run this in March 2020, but kept moving the goal posts. But the course is finally launching in 2nd week of July. Check out the program details here and add your name to waiting list if you are keen.

Excel Virtually Global conference

A bunch of Excel people are getting together and running 48hours of non stop Excel virtual conference. All the proceeds from this go to charities. I will be speaking on “how to make checklists and trackers using Excel” in my native language – Telugu.

Please click here for details and sign up. It is tremendous value.


As you know Chandoo.org family moved from India to New Zealand in 2016. One of the most difficult parts of the move is giving up mangoes. While you can purchase mangoes in the supermarkets here, the sweet & pulpy Indian varieties like banganapally, alfonso or kesar are hard to to get. 🙁

With lock downs & restrictions all over the world, things looked even more ominous.

Well, I am glad to tell you that the gastronomical cravings have been sated. We bought two boxes of banganapally mangoes sometime ago and micro-dosing on them everyday. Yummy!!!

Here is me sniffing a mango before carefully stuffing it back in the box 😀

And oh yea, I have a beard now.

That is all for now. We will revert back to usual doses of Excel & Power BI goodness from Monday. Enjoy your weekend.
