Featured Presentation:

Everything you always wanted to know about Power BI dataflows, but were afraid to ask

Matthew Roche, Senior Program Manager Microsoft

By now you’ve probably had a chance to use dataflows in Power BI for self-service data preparation. This new capability allows analysts and business users to create reusable data entities in the Power BI service, enabling data reuse without the need for IT involvement. This special Easter session will be as much conversation as presentation. Power BI Program Manager Matthew Roche will bring both basic and advanced dataflows topics and demos, but the agenda will be shaped by attendee interests and questions. Please join us if you have questions about dataflows in Power BI, or are just interested in a relaxed discussion about this exciting new feature.
