I’m delighted to announce I’ll give a session at the next PASS BA webinar marathon. The topic of this marathon is Data Driven Storytelling and Data Discovery. My session will focus on working with Power BI Desktop: getting data in, cleaning it, creating a model and visualizing the data. It will be mostly demos and just a couple of slides. A lot of the material will come from my free Power BI course, so if you want to see it in live action make sure you don’t miss the webinar.
Title: Hands-On Data Analysis With Power BI Desktop
There are lots of flashy Power BI demos everywhere. But most of the time, you don’t see the internal mechanics. In this demo-heavy session, we’re going to build a Power BI demo from scratch. We’ll combine data from various sources, build a simple data model and start creating data visualizations. We’ll also take a quick look at the analytical capabilities of Power BI Desktop. After this session, you’ll have a good overview of the features Power BI Desktop has to offer and you can start your own data analytics journey.
When? March 29, 2017 at 19:00GMT. Keep in mind some parts of the world (like in West-Europe), will be in daylight savings time. So in my case (Brussels), GMT +2.
