Are you struggling with getting your VBA code to work again and again?

Have you been assigned a VBA project at work and your VBA skills are not up to the task?

Are you in despair because your VBA code stopped to work after a "minor" change and you have no clue why?

If you answered any of these questions with yes, this course is for you!

In this course Philipp Stiefel teaches a deep, fundamental understanding of programming in the VBA programming language from the ground up.

After taking this course, you will be able to …

  • Understand programming in VBA from the ground up.
  • Reduce the time you need to implement a solution.
  • Avoid common pitfalls.
  • Quickly find, analyze, and fix problems in existing VBA code.
  • Write code that can be easily maintained and enhanced in the future.

The core teaching medium of this course is high resolution video of practical coding in the VBA development environment, supported by presentations about the base theory of each topic. The course also includes supplemental course materials, such as homework assignments, homework reviews, downloadable cheat sheets, and quizzes.

The course is suitable for beginners in programming and VBA. Students with intermediate knowledge of VBA will also highly benefit from this course. – A basic knowledge of Microsoft Access and SQL is helpful but not strictly required.

This course is taught in Microsoft Access, but it is not a Microsoft Access course. The focus is firmly on VBA and the core content of every lecture in this course is all the same valid in other VBA enabled application such as Microsoft Excel or Microsoft Word. Access related topics are only covered to the extend they are relevant for the example application built in the course.

This is an opinionated course. Philipp draws from his long experience as a VBA application developer to cut through the noise and focus on the important aspects of VBA you will need in day-to-day programming. He also includes his philosophy of writing maintainable code right from the start.
