Introducing DAX Video Course

This is an introductory video course about the DAX language. DAX is the native language of Power BI, Power Pivot for Excel, and SSAS Tabular models in Microsoft SQL Server Analysis Services. The training is aimed at users of Power BI, Power Pivot for Excel, and at Analysis Services developers that want to move the first steps with DAX.

The goal is to teach the DAX language using Power BI for all the examples. You can download the initial Power BI Desktop file used in the demos and repeat all the steps shown in the videos. The same concepts can be used also on Power Pivot and on Analysis Services Tabular. The course is made of 150 minutes of lectures. You can watch the videos at anytime and the system will keep track of your advances. Within the course you can download the slides and the initial Power BI file used in the demos.

  • sourabh kasera (May 14, 2021)

    Good course but if the pace of the course is a little less then it could be easier to understand. And I was expecting more lectures on the time intelligence formulas.

    much helpful! expecting more videos by using real examples. In addition with mySQL

  • Peter Pisár (May 2, 2021)

    I think anybody who starts with DAX should start exactly with this course. No books, no other videos, just exactly with this course because this course provides enough fundamentals which a new student can build on his/her next DAX skills.
