DAX is the native language of Power Pivot for Excel, Power BI Desktop and SSAS Tabular models in Microsoft SQL Server Analysis Services. This course is aimed at BI professionals, Power BI and Excel users who already know the DAX language and want to learn how to optimize DAX formulas and models for improving performance.

This two-day workshop is a complete course about optimizing queries and measures in the DAX language.

The course includes hands-on labs: you will make practice using your own notebook.
