VBA or Office.JS! The dialogue of dilemma.
I have been a part of one Office.JS WhatsApp group for a long and it's not an ordinary group at all! I found a bunch of good excel professionals there but still, no conversation had happened in that group since it's been created.
I know it's too early to decide or compare the interests of people for Office Js but it's also a reality that we do not have a proper driving force that can lead us to do some learning and experiment with the Office JS framework. We learned Excel and VBA just by doing some random stuff here and there and developed interests too. Even the freshers of this phase, tending to learn VBA because it's easier to understand and write.
Python is still evolving to compete with VBA in all areas. I do not know whether people will accept Python as an interface for office automation or not! Most data scientists are learning python these days but excel is not only used for data science alone. Excel with VBA making that framework easy to build various business solutions prototypes, report automation, and somehow ERPs too! So, python has still a very long to chase to compete with Excel+VBA in all areas.
If Office Js is the output of having thought of creating macros for a universal platform then they should have adopted & implemented C# and ASP.NET framework for the office automation scripting. It is cross-platform, adaptable, modern and most importantly it is user-friendlier than office JS in the context of coding! I would say, with just a little effort, current VBA professionals would have had become a part of that framework but I do not know about the likable future of Office JS. Please comment on your opinion here as well.
are you guys a part of any "ACTIVE" group on Office Js? Please let us know. So we could join them as well and learn to support the future!
