DAX, or Data Analysis Expressions, is the language that's used to create formulas for Power BI that extend our data model. DAX gives us the ability to create additional information at runtime so that we can quickly and easily generate new information beyond the information that's in our model already.
If you already know how to build data models in Power BI Desktop, DAX is a logical next step, because there are things that we can do with DAX that we can't do as easily or at all without it. This course is designed to explore the capabilities of DAX in Power BI.
This is not a beginner’s course in Power BI. Our assumption is that you know some things before attending. For example, you know how to connect to data sources in Power BI Desktop, and once you have, you know how to add and remove columns, and change data types. If not, we recommend attending either the 3-hour Power BI Introduction or 1-day Power BI Introduction course first.
