Hands-On Data Analysis With Power BI Desktop at PASS BA Marathon

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.

There are 5 sessions in total and the abstracts look quite nice, so check out the other speakers as well. You can register here and find the full agenda here.

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.

  1. Koen,

    You did a great job today. It is the best session among the 3 I have called into.

    Particular I like when you are facing a tough question on “slicer on time of the day” – You answer demonstrated you have low-ego and always willing to learn and test.
