The Greater Houston Power BI User Group's meetings are a place to chat with other Power BI users from beginners to experts. You'll have the opportunity to attend interactive sessions that cover a range of topics that can help get you started, or take your already-created Power BI assets to the next level. Participation is strongly encouraged and we would welcome your ideas for presentations and additional content.

February BI Blitz
In February, we’re trying to get more people to the podium. To that end, we are featuring lightning talks: shorter, more focused talks on a wider range of topics. We’ve got several folks ready-to-go, but we would like to have 6-8 presenters. If you would like to give a short talk on any subject related to Power BI (a particular visual, a nifty DAX technique, some add-on product, a related technology, etc.), please contact Glen, Greg, or Daniel, and we’ll add you to the growing list.

Greg Bounds, IronEdge Group:
My Path to Enlightenment—Resources to learn Power BI

Sonny Childs, Slalom

Andrew Machiano, Heath Consultants

Mohammad Hamzah, Schlumberger:

Meeting Format:
