To get the best out of this Day you must have attended Mastering DAX, either in the classroom or via the video course. Attending SQLBI Days - Advanced DAX the day before is a good idea, but that is not mandatory.

Efficient and optimized DAX code is a big part of your organization’s success: it is faster, makes users happier, and represents significant savings in terms of Power BI capacity.

If you have not had a chance to study our Optimizing DAX video course, but are working with DAX at a level where performance and capacity usage are starting to be key, you need to attend this Day. You will learn what is needed to optimize DAX and which tools to use. It will set you up to better absorb and understand farther, in-depth optimization content offered by SQLBI.
