Power BI Weekend

LIVE ON 18 & 19 NOV

🕝 UK: 5AM ~ INDIA: 10:30AM ~ USA(Seattle): 9PM

What is the Power BI Weekend?

Imagine beginning the weekend saying “I don’t know Power BI” and ending it with “I know Power BI”.  That is what Power BI Weekend is.

It is a 4 hour (2 hours on Saturday and 2 more on Sunday) live event where I help you understand how to use Power BI to solve real world problems. We start the with a sample dataset and end it with 2 full-fledge reports built in Power BI.

You will learn:

  • What is Power BI? How to use it?
  • Power BI vs Power Query vs. Power Pivot
  • Understanding Power BI Visual interactions & customizing them
  • Data cleanup and transformations with PQ
  • Setting up a star schema data model
  • Creating and using DAX measures 
  • Interactive storytelling in Power BI
  • Saving & publishing your work
  • Resources to learn more
  • Q&A with you
This is the first course that I have attended with you. I've already told my supervisor that I can't wait to take another one.
