We have very exciting Power BI Dev Camp session this month covering Row Level Security. Please join us at Thursday, Janauary 27th at 2:00 PM EST/11:00AM PDT to learn the ins and outs of working with Row Level Security when building custom data analytics solutions for Power BI.
The Power BI Dev Camp session this week is titled Building Solutions using Power Automate and the Power BI REST API. Campers will learn how to build Power Platform solutions with flows and canvas apps that call the Power BI REST APIs to automate common Power BI builder tasks such as importing PBIX files, refreshing datasets and exporting reports to PDF files.
Did you know that Power BI offers an Export API which can be used export Power BI reports into commonly used file formats including PDF, XLSX, CSV, XML, PPTX and PNG. The November session of Power BI Dev Camp session explains how to write the code to export both Power BI reports and paginated reports and explains the differences in supported output formats.
The October Power BI Dev Camp session will teach campers how to use deployment pipelines for managing the application lifecycle of datasets and reports and for enabling CI/CD in a Power BI environment. The session explains how deployment pipelines are configured to create dedicated workspaces for developing and testing Power BI artifacts including datasets, reports, dashboards and dataflows.
Looking for a way to surface Power BI reports on pages in a Salesforce organization? This session will teach you how to embed reports in Salesforce using either User-Owns-Data embedding or App-Owns-Data embedding.
Power BI provides all the features required to design and implement multi-language reports. The good news is that it's no longer necessary to clone and maintain a separate PBIX project file for each language. However, the path to success with building multi-language reports is not overly intuitive. Join the Power BI Dev Camp session on Thursday, July 22 to learn more about the Power BI features for Internationalization and localization and to get the technical guidance you need for building reports that support multiple languages.
Next week's Power BI Dev Camp session on Thursday, June 24 will introduce campers to the App-Owns-Data Starter Kit which is a sample solution for developers built using .NET 5 to provide guidance for organizations and ISVs who are using App-Owns-Data embedding with Power BI in a multi-tenant environment. If you are planning to use Power BI embedding to reach customers and other types of external users, the App-Owns-Data Starter kit provides the fastest way to stand up a custom application which embraces best practices for tenant provisioning, user authorization and activity monitoring.
Learn how to use the Tabular Editor to perform advanced data modeling techniques not available when working with Power BI Desktop. Michael Kovolsky will introduce the Best Practice Analyzer and discuss how to use this powerful tool to scan your Power BI data model to find areas for improvement.
Learn advanced dataset programming using both the Power BI REST API and the Tabular Object Model (TOM). In this Power BI Dev Camp session, campers will learn how to create and clone datasets as well as how to extend the data model for a dataset by adding tables, columns, measures, hierarchies and table relationships. This session will also cover the how to automate patching datasource credentials and running dataset refresh operations.
Looking for a New Years resolution to boost your morale and increase your market value? Join us at Power BI Dev Cap and learn how to get started designing and implementing custom visuals for Power BI. Campers will learn how to define custom visual capabilities and data mappings as well as how to program D3-style data binding using categorical data from a Power BI dataset. The session also demonstrates other essential skills including how to extend a visual with custom properties and how to package a custom visual as a PBIVIZ file.
Step up your game as a Power BI developer by learning how to develop single page applications (SPAs) to embed Power BI reports and dashboards using the ever-popular React.js library. If you're able to attend the December session of Power BI Dev Camp on Thursday, December 17th, you'll learn how to design and develop SPA applications using React components to handle routing, navigation and Power BI embedding.
