Demystifying DAX - Take your DAX to the next level

Course Description:
DAX is the data modelling language of Power BI and Power Pivot for Excel. It is reasonably easy to get started with DAX, however sooner or later most people hit a wall where they get stuck and can't move forward. Have you ever typed a DAX formula, pressed enter and then crossed your fingers hoping you will get the right answer? If this sounds like you, then chances are there are some deeper concepts that you don't fully understand, and these gaps are stopping you from moving forward.

In this full day pre-con session, Matt Allington (author of the book Supercharge Power BI) will clearly explain how the DAX language really works under the hood. At the end of the session you will fully understand filter propagation, evaluation contexts and some of the harder to understand concepts and functions. The session will use real world examples to explain the concepts. This is not a beginner’s course – you should already know the basics of DAX and have been using the language for at least 6 months before attending.

Course Objectives:
Fill gaps in understanding of how the DAX Language works in order to underpin future learning and understanding.

Course Audience: Users of Power BI and Power Pivot for Excel who already have a base understanding and experience using DAX

Course Level:

Course Pre-Requisites: Bring your own laptop with Power BI Desktop and DAX Studio installed.
