Prerequisites

Attendees need basic knowledge of Power BI Desktop, or Analysis Services Tabular, or Power Pivot for Excel.

We strongly suggest attendees watch the free Introducing DAX online course before attending the Mastering DAX workshop. This ensures proper basic knowledge of the language to start Mastering DAX. A minimum of 3-6 months of DAX experience is usually suggested to get the most out of the Mastering DAX workshop.

All hands-on labs are based on Power BI - reasonable user interface knowledge is suggested, though the same DAX concepts can also be applied to Power Pivot for Excel and to Analysis Services Tabular.
