September 2018 Meetup
BRIAN GRANT (CSG Pro) - Dial Sparklines for Table Visualizations The new hotness in Power BI visuals are the generated SVG Measures. These let you create a DAX measure that constructs an image right in Power BI which essentially lets you create your own dynamic charts with the added bonus that they can be added as columns to a table or matrix. In this presentation local DAX obsessive Brian Grant will show you how to use a CSG built Dial sparkline measure to quickly display goal to actual information in a highly compressed manner that will be an excellent addition to your table visualizing arsenal. We'll walk through the code quickly, but this is a ready to go tool, all you have to do is fill in the blanks at the top of the DAX formula and then drop it wherever you need it. PAUL TURLEY (CSG Pro) - Visualize World Peace Through the Art and Science of Presenting Beautiful Data in Power BI This is a sneak peek of Paul's PASS Summit presentation happening on November 8th, 2018 in Seattle, WA. How do you balance aesthetic design, branding, intuitive functionality, color and composition with important business information? This session will help you understand how to create reports that appeal to both brain hemispheres and resonate with your audience. We’ll start by exploring a few scientific principles and psychology of information, perception and understanding. And, we will explore the fringes of honest and ethical data presentation. Learn simple techniques to transform your Power BI reports from HMM to WOW in a few easy steps. We will demonstrate how to apply report layouts, graphics and themes to create Goldilocks reports; not too boring or too sexy, but just right for the user audience. Topics include: • Report visual choices • Using the right chart types • Visualizing geographic data • Making correct color choices • Using templates and layouts • Measuring progress and success • Visualizing key performance indicators
