Join us on Tuesday, July 31st for our July 2018 Tampa Power BI User Group event!

This is part 4 of the Project Professional Series we introduced at our April 2018 Meetup covering all things becoming a Power BI Professional. Our last meeting introduced the Data View and DAX basics in Power BI, and will be continuing to focus on the DAX language by getting into the major features that will power-up your BI Reports.

The DAX language in Power BI is the workhorse of any metric or number in a Report, and understanding the potential and power of how to use DAX is quite possibly the most significant skill set to becoming a pro. This meetup will cover using the most used DAX functions, understanding Filters, & provide scenarios on when to use certain DAX formulas. Make sure to bring your computer & download the files for the meetup!

We will also be covering the Microsoft Business Applications Summit that will have just concluded the previous week. The Summit will cover how to gain expertise into Microsoft’s end-to-end business applications, including new Power BI tools & features coming to the PBI platform.
