Did this last year… for fun. I only fiddle around in Python sometimes because it’s everywhere but I’m always in Excel at least once a day for something… and I haven’t had a job using Excel since 2002.
[still using borrowed work copy from back then + open source spreadsheets for bigger projects]
Oh, if you “think like Excel”, you might like this 2D CAD. I tried a bunch and didn’t like but this reminded me (somehow) of working in Excel. Maybe because of the infinite zoom, infinite grid, snapping to grid.. and grid grid grid etc… and free.
