What a great start to the Enterprise DNA Learning Summit. Today we had two sessions that dived into some advanced development techniques that can be utilized inside of Power BI.
We had a record number of live attendees of close to 350 which is a fantastic result. Every continent around the world was represented, so that’s pretty special. It’s always very satisfying to run events where we can bring many different users of Power BI from all around the world together.
Really appreciate all the feedback that has come through around the first day of the summit and about the two completed workshops. It’s always great to know that those who are attending and interacting live are really getting plenty out of the workshop content and resources that are made available.
Even though we are two sessions down you can still register for the event. Please use the link below.
During the first session we dived into a range of tips around advance model setup & development. Due to the range of unique scenarios that you could ultimately be working with in your own business environments, the session was all about giving you a good overview of how to implement many best practices into your own models.
We covered in detail the data model, also touched on various different aspects of the query editor and finally ran through some initial core DAX measures and visualizations that we will be building upon and utilizing throughout the rest of the summit workshops.
In the second session we ran through some segmentation patterns. Segmentation techniques inside of Power BI can sometimes take a little bit of getting used to. The reason is because you need to combine some effective modeling techniques with the correct DAX formulas and function combinations.
This encore session is really worth diving into. Learning how to combine all of these things together effectively so that you can showcase the correct insights in your Power BI reports and dashboards will certainly bring so much value to your clients.
That’s all for this brief review of the first day of this Learning Summit. Remember if you still want to register you can by using the link above.
There is still four sessions to go during this virtual summit so certainly join in if you can, as I want you to learn as much as possible about high-quality Power BI development.
Look forward to seeing you at the next session tomorrow.
