Join co-presenters David Cobb and Joe Homnick for a unique way to learn Power BI while preparing for Microsoft Certification Exam DA-100: Analyzing Data with Microsoft Power BI. This session will go through practice exam questions and then analyze the answers. The GCUG has held many meetings in this format in the past and the consensus is that it is a great learning process for attendees regardless of whether you are planning on taking the test or not. We will be doing a series of meetings that follow the Microsoft published Skills Measured for the DA-100 test as follows: Prepare the data (20-25%) Model the data (25-30%) Visualize the data (20-25%) ** Current meeting topic ** Analyze the data, deploy and maintain deliverables (20-30%) The last three GCUG in-person and remote meetings have been safe and resounding successes, so we will keep up this format for this series of meetings. The in-person portion will be limited to 10 attendees in an outdoor Boca/Delray location that allows for social distancing. Safely prepared and packaged food and libations will be provided. Contact [masked] if you would like to join the limited in-person portion of meeting. ** SPECIAL OFFER TO DA-100 TEST TAKERS FROM HOMNICK SYSTEMS ** For qualified test takers (whether you are taking the exam or have already taken it) Homnick Systems is offering the following for DA-100 Certified professionals who associate with Homnick Systems. - Pay for passed DA-100 exam - Visual Studio Enterprise subscription, a $6k value, see https://visualstudio.microsoft.com/vs/pricing-details/ for more details - supplying access to Power BI Premium features, see https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/pricing/ for more details This offer is for DA-100 certified persons who associate with Homnick Systems.

We don’t know “Who let the dogs out”, but the “Original Gangstas of the Users Group” (OGs of the UG) community movement organizers in South Florida are “Putting the Band Back Together” for this event. Panelists scheduled to appear are: Jason Beres Alex Funkhouser Paul George Joe Homnick Dave Noderer Shervin Shakibi The OGs of the UG will be discussing the evolution of the Data Developer in a panel format. From FoxPro to Artificial Intelligence, these “Usual Suspects” will share their unique perspectives based on almost 30 years of contributing to the UG movement along the Gold Coast. This panel will undoubtedly be entertaining as they share a wealth of information gained from decades of experience in the IT industry.
