Inside Power Query

Marco Russo, Consultant SQLBI

Power Query is a fundamental component of Microsoft Power BI. It extracts and transforms data from heterogeneous data sources, storing results in Excel and Power Pivot data models. This session shows in detail the features of Power Query. After a description of the architecture, you will see the available connectors, and then the transformations available in the user interface. Finally, you will learn how to implement transformations that are more complex by using the “M” language. The goal of this session is providing technical insights about Power Query, but without requiring a previous experience on this product. However, you will benefit of testing the tool before attending the session, just to be already familiar with the user interface.
