Description

The DAX language is the foundation of self-service Business Intelligence using the Microsoft stack. It is the language used to query and program Power BI, PowerPivot for Microsoft Excel, and SQL Server Analysis Services Tabular models. Learning the basics of DAX is very simple, but mastering it is a different story because it requires a mindset that needs some study, for both BI Professionals and Information Workers.

During this one-day workshop, the author of the bestseller books The Definitive Guide to DAX, The Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Analysis Services: The BISM Tabular Model, and Building Data Models with Power Pivot, will guide you in the process of learning the DAX language, through many examples and scenarios that will help you understand the important concepts of DAX and how to leverage them in the everyday work.

The workshop is useful to many profiles: Information Workers interested in exploiting the many interesting features of PowerPivot for Excel and BI developers who want to learn the DAX language.
