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.

  • paul john (Oct 18, 2018)

    I found the course very interesting and helpful. Coming into DAX without any training is tricky, and this course was a great way to understand some of the key basics with DAX. I thoroughly recommend it.

  • Aziz Quazi (Oct 16, 2018)

    This is my second visit learning DAX functions incl. relationship and time intelligence. I really learned a lot, even I go through some other videos from other resources, in my second time even and from a FREE course provided by these two gentlemen. I simply cannot imagine what's inside the "Mastering-DAX". I will definitely try there. Thank you very much Sirs AF and MR for this help to this community. Rgds..Aziz
