If you've attended our Power BI Introduction course, or you already know how to connect to data, create reports and publish this online for others to see, then understanding the complexities of the DAX language is the next stage. DAX is the calculation language used in Power BI Desktop to create calculated columns and measures, it is also used in Power Pivot for Excel and Analysis Services (tabular) in SQL Server.
DAX is a functional language like Excel, indeed many of the functions are the same, however don't be fooled into thinking you can use those functions in the same way! There is some theory to understand and quite a bit of practice to master the basics of DAX. This course will take you through the basics and beyond, opening up the world of Time Intelligence calculations and mastering evaluation contexts.
