How Is the Course Structured?
The 365 Power BI Course covers 10 sections and 8 hours of interactive video lectures. It begins with an introduction to Power BI and a guide to obtaining a free copy of Power BI desktop. Don’t worry if you are a MAC user, there’s a non-technical solution for you as well. Following the basics, the course continues with some of the best practices that will help you become a Power BI developer. What is more, it comprises sections on how to enter data inside Power BI using DAX code or the native Power BI interface. You’ll have the opportunity to build your first data model and examine the relationships available in Power BI. In addition, we’ll touch base on Role Level Security. There are lectures that drill into more sophisticated functions such as time-intelligence, iterators, and data-modeling, as well.
But that’s not all. You’ll also discover how to style your dashboards and boost your reports’ efficiency. And, in the final project, you will implement all the knowledge you’ve gained in this course by building a dashboard for a sales team from scratch.
