Do You Speak English? Localized Reports with Power BI

Online event

Even when we live in a global world your end-users might expect to get their reports in their own local language. This talk is guiding you through the available options and necessary steps to give the report user control over the language:
• Content of textual columns
• Headlines
• Currency
• Model (names of tables, columns and measures)
• Power BI Desktop and Power BI service
You will learn to extend Power BI’s data model to allow for multi-language support of column content and headlines (and how you can automate the translation of the texts with Azure Cognitive Services). I will show you how you can implement currency conversion and how to translate the model’s meta data. Finally, we look at how to change the language in Power BI Desktop in in Power service.

Luis Beltran - Cosmos DB + Azure Functions: A serverless database processing

With the native integration between Cosmos DB and Azure Functions, you can create database triggers, input bindings, and output bindings directly from your account.

Using Azure Functions and Cosmos DB, you can create and deploy event-driven serverless apps with low-latency access to rich data for a global user base.

In this session, we'll explore what it takes to setup a serverless environment capable of performing CRUD operations on a Cosmos DB account, as well as some recommendations and use cases.

I am a fan of software development, particularly mobile apps with Xamarin integrated with cloud computing services, such as Azure. Moreover, Artificial Intelligence is amazing and one of my favorite topics!

I've been developing .NET apps for more than 10 years. I find C# a really powerful language which allow us to create different kinds of software.

I enjoy sharing my knowledge with others, either at writing a blog post or streaming an online session. Of course, activities such as talking for a conference and answering peeps' questions in social networks are included as well.
