Vancouver Power BI Boot Camp

[ Edited ]

Data to Dashboards - Power BI Boot Camp

 

Course Description

Join us for an intensive three-day, hands-on boot camp that will allow you to hit the ground running with Power BI. Geared specifically towards Excel users who have never used Power BI, this course takes you from opening the Power BI Desktop for the first time to publishing live, interactive dashboards. Power BI Desktop allows rapid collection and cleaning of data and creates a relational database of the data on the fly. But the best part is that once this work is done it provides access to compelling dashboards that are attractive, interactive and best of all incredibly easy to both build and refresh.

 

 

Course at a Glance

Topics covered over the three days will include:

  • Data sourcing and transformation
  • Data modelling and DAX measures
  • Working with data visualizations
  • Publishing Power BI solutions
