Bio: I come from a non-technical background, Started learning PBI in 2017 and nothing made sense to me, then had an on-off relationship with it for next 2 years primarily because I didn't understand DAX or PQ at all ( Excel formula geeks would understand my point ), and then back in September 2019 I took things seriously and started again with DAX and after studying only DAX for next 8-10 months I realized that it is now time to give back to the community because not everyone really wants to invest time in understanding everything deeply and that's fine because when I need a solution for something I may not want to learn everything, but since I did invest so much time in DAX and I realized a lot of people ( just like I was in 2017 ) are only looking for a solution but are struggling with the core concepts, I am here helping them by sharing my knowledge.
