This Day is for you if:
  • You have been using Power BI for a while and you are ready to start learning DAX.
  • You do not want to waste time by getting started on wobbly foundations, getting frustrated, and only then turning to SQLBI where you will have to unlearn what you know and start over.

Let’s get you jumping into the DAX world the right way, right from the start. This introductory Day with Marco Russo or Alberto Ferrari will take you on an exploration of DAX that will give you a solid foundation upon which to build. You do not want to learn by trial and error when it comes to the basics!

What you will be hearing at Introduction to DAX is content that has been delivered a handful of times in the past by Marco and Alberto at pre-conference workshops at international conferences; however, this version is updated with demos that use the latest version of Power BI.

This one-day seminar will have you learning DAX essentials from the world’s best, who know the issues that newbies are facing when they get started. Because it is just one day, the impact on your work week is minimal while still bearing fruit in the long term as your DAX journey starts off right. If you have not had a chance to attend the introductory sessions Marco and Alberto deliver at conferences, this is your chance all the while committing to only one day!
