I am thrilled to announce that the video from our first Power BI Dev Camp session titled Developing for Power BI using .NET Core is now available on the Power BI community video gallery. This video is accompanied by a hands-on tutorial which teaches campers how to implement Users-Owns-Data embedding with .NET Core 3.1 and Microsoft's newest authentication library, Microsoft.Identity.Web. The tutorial also teaches developers how to migrate from JavaScript to TypeScript when programming the Power BI JavaScript API. We've also made the PowerPoint slides from the session available for download for anyone who wants to review the advanced developer topics and code covered in the video.

Nevetheless I hope that it helps you better understanding what gateways actually do, and how to manage them better.

If you haven't seen how gzip works, you can check this post about it.
