Teach someone how to use it

One of the simplest ways to increase your understanding about something is to teach someone else. The See, Do, Teach approach to learning is very effective at building your skills in any area.

Whether it's how to use the Power BI mobile app, create a visual or the concepts of DAX, teaching someone a new concept forces you to understand it better yourself.

Just like the popular Einstein quote says: If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough.


Listen to the experts

The Power BI universe is growing everyday and it's hard to keep up with all of the new updates, features, use cases and creative work-arounds by yourself.

There are many Power BI experts out there and the Power BI community is full of amazingly innovative and generous individuals. Whether you have a few minutes or a couple of hours to spare, there is a podcast or YouTube video for you.

We recommend that you check out the Guy in a cube YouTube channel, sqlbi's blogs or the BIFocal podcast.


Attend a Power BI user group

Before Covid-19, we would gather in an office, huddle of boxes of Pizza and share stories about Power BI at our local user group. In the new normal, we can join via Zoom and Microsoft Teams but still share our stories, use cases and creative solutions to problems.

There's a local Power BI user group in every Australian city. Plus because of the move to online user groups you can also join in user groups from across the world. Here are our favourite Australian Power BI communities:
And from around the globe:

Learn a complementary skill

While there is a lot to learn within the Microsoft Power BI environment, mastering other complimentary skills can also help you take your Power BI skills to the next level. 

If you want to increase skills in databases or data wrangling consider upskilling in SQL or learn to use Azure Data Factory.

If you are looking to boost your Data Analysis skills consider learning R or Python, not only can you use these programming languages within Power BI visuals but you can also undertake advanced data analysis, data wrangling, machine learning and process automation.

Microsoft Power BI sits within the Power Platform integrating easily with other applications such as Power Apps, Power Automate, Power Virtual Agents and the Dataverse. Learning how to automate and act on your data insights can boost your Power BI solutions capability.
