Power BI Desktop & Online Advanced + DAX course in English

The Power BI Desktop & Online Advanced + DAX course is a two-day practice-oriented course in which we elaborate on the use of Power BI Desktop. Among other things, we pay attention to the proper design of a model and choices for column calculations or measurements. DAX is a formula language with which you can perform all kinds of calculations with your data in Microsoft Power BI. The language is comparable, sometimes even identical, to Excel formulas. But with DAX even more is possible and the usage is a bit more complex. Working with DAX functions is lifted to a higher level, and we will work out the extra visualizations further in the training.
