Associated with Greater Houston Texas Power BI Users

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.

March BI Madness
Following the success of lightning talks in February, we’re continuing our efforts to get more people to the podium. 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 ([masked]), Greg ([masked]), or Daniel ([masked]), and we’ll add you to the growing list.
