What will you learn?

After the training, you will be able to:

Explain the theoretical background and inner workings of Power BI

Work from different data sources with Power BI

Perform advanced Power BI techniques, including working with M & DAX

Apply best practices while working with Power BI


During this training, you will learn how to perform advanced data transformations unavailable in the Query Editor. We will discuss leveraging the embedded PowerBI programming language (M) to achieve this. The M basics will be covered as well as how to write custom functions empowering participants to work with poorly structured data and to prepare it for a star structure.

In addition, you will learn how to enable dashboard users to write back to a source through Power Apps. We will cover Power Apps fundamentals, including how to create a Power App and add it as a visual on a Power BI dashboard.

Finally, as performance problems might occur when models grow larger and more complex, we will address the Vertpaq Analyzer and DAX studio, two powerful tools to diagnose and fix performance issues.

  • Introduction to M
  • Creating functions in M
  • DAX tips & tricks
  • Working with Tabular Editor
  • Diagnosing performance issues
  • Introducing DAX Studio
  • Analyzing the processing of DAX code
