Hi! ๐Ÿ‘‹ I'm Tyler Robertson
I'm a writer, programmer, and spreadsheet artist.

Here, you'll find all of my weird Google Sheets experiments, created entirely within Sheets's built-in features (meaning there's no Apps Script or Extensions). I hope you enjoy them, and learn a bit about what spreadsheets can do outside of work!

I took a little time off this month to focus on other projects, but couldn't stay away from spreadsheets for long!

After looking through my list of project ideas, I was surprised I hadn't tried this one already, being a big fan of Conway's Game of Life. Setting it up was a little tricky, though, because of the way Google Sheets processes cells from top-to-bottom and left-to-right. Un-hide the rows to see how I did it!
