This workshop is a complete 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 learn and master the DAX language.

The goal of the course is to teach all the features of DAX, providing the knowledge to write formulas for common and advanced business scenarios. The course is made of more than 15 hours of lectures, and other 15-20 hours of individual exercises. You can watch the videos at anytime and the system will keep track of your advances. Within the course you can download the material for all the exercises.


Students of the video course have access to a private discussion area where they can interact with the instructors asking questions related to the lectures and the exercises.

  • Izacc Moreira (Aug 23, 2019)

    Fantastic Work!!!!

  • Rodrigo Palomino (Aug 13, 2019)

    All Good!

  • David Kofod Hanna (Aug 6, 2019)

    Great course!

  • Alberto Daccarett (Aug 5, 2019)

    Best DAX training out there.

  • cosmin ioan (Aug 2, 2019)

    the most in-depth DAX course on the market! Great presentation & mix of demos and scripts! many thanks, Alberto, Marco, for the wealth of knowledge and effort put into creating such a fantastic course!!

  • Elly Winters (Jul 24, 2019)

    Fantastic course! I feel like I levelled up a lot in my journey to learn DAX with this course. I really appreciated how complex concepts were presented in an easy to understand way. Thank you Alberto and Marco for delivering such great content.

  • Muhammad Bilal Azim (Jul 15, 2019)

    I will describe this course by by using a line from first Avengers movie "The DAX video course has shown me so much. It's more than knowledge. It's truth" The content and flow of topics from start to finish is so elegantly structured, its perfect. I am from accounting background without any background in coding or programming and still able to understand the concepts taught in the course as they have been delivered in such an elegant manner Thank you Marco and Alberto

  • Thomas Kwakman (Jul 10, 2019)

    Hard to find better. Very hard.

  • Marcelo Salata (Jul 8, 2019)

    Great!!!

  • Iva Vucak (Jul 5, 2019)

    This course is excellent. I have never seen complex functions explained in such easy to understand way. 2nd edition is even better, context transition is better explained, I think. You helped me so much, thank you for amazing course!

  • Nghia Tran Trong (Jun 27, 2019)

    good

  • Gary Friend (Jun 19, 2019)

    Great course, brilliantly presented. Certain I will go through from the beginning again to make sure I pick up all of the insights it delivers.

  • Luca Priano (Jun 17, 2019)

    Fully satisfied ;-)

  • Paul Talbot (Jun 16, 2019)

    You can't take this course, do all the exercises, and not come away with a much higher understanding of DAX. The last 'Relationships at different granularities' module is an excellent capstone to all the learning. I personally benefited from a much better understanding of TREATAS, CROSSFILTER, ALLSELECTED, and DAX Studio / querying using the SUMMARIZE-type functions. The only thing I would say is that I would probably still not recommend this material to someone who hasn't touched DAX before (e.g. to a person completely new to Power BI who has to learn DAX as well), but that doesn't reduce the overall 5-star rating for me.

  • Fernando Luís (Jun 7, 2019)

    Congratulations Alberto and Marco. This course is very well structure, very complete and effective. It help me a lot. With this course I could understand things that were not totally clear, after the read of your book “The Definitive Guide to DAX” .
