We are a group of Power BI and Modern Excel enthusiasts. This group is dedicated to running monthly meetings to share techniques and inspire incredible data analytics and dashboards using Power BI and the Modern Excel tools (Power Pivot and Power Query).
**Please note that this is the last meet-up for 2019 as we don't have an event in December. We'll be back in January 2020!
Joseph Yeates will start off the evening by going over the latest features in Power BI. Ken Puls will then show us what's new in Microsoft Excel.
How familiar are you with what’s changed in Excel in the last few versions? Do you know about Power Query and Power Pivot, and how they’ve eliminated data processing during the process of reporting your KPI’s?
How about spreadsheet Co-Authoring, Rich Data Types, Insights, Map Charts, and Dynamic Arrays? Come to this session to learn about the amazing features that may already be living on your desktop!
