Our one-day course will introduce key concepts and work through exercises so students leave with a clearer picture of how to write DAX. You will learn:

  • To write DAX functions and understand expressions
  • use tools to help manage and create DAX
  • create complex expressions 
  • learn methods to optimise expressions and more

Great -Power BI Beginner Perth
Lorraine - Power BI Beginner, .
This was one of the best online courses I have done. The presenter did a great job of explaining things and keeping things on track, and also answered questions along the way in a very helpful way. My only suggestion would be that there could be some time at the end of the day (say up to 1/2 hour) for Q&A in which participants could ask more questions they had from the session, and/or further items of interest could be pursued. (And I guess participants who weren't interested in further discussion could leave). I felt the schedule was so full there wasn't much time for discussion. -Power BI Advanced Melbourne
Leo - Power BI Advanced, .
