Spreadsheet Solver and minimizer

There was a lesson on fastai where Jeremy showed solver in excel.

The standard solver in MS Excel has a limit around 200 variables in nonlinear optimization.

To avoid that limit I suggest: OpenSolver. The Nomad nonlinear solver doesn’t appears to have such limitation. I have no relation to that project. Just had quite a difficult time finding an alternative to solver and hope this may help someone. It’s free.
