Power BI Hands-On Workshops in April, 2017
During the month of April, I will be delivering three full-day Power BI hands-On workshops. Each of these events will be the Friday preceding these SQL Saturday events. Seating is limited and many of these workshops tend to book-up. Follow the links to register.
Huntington Beach, Orange County, CA; March 31
SQL Saturday: April 1
Madison, WI; April 7
SQL Saturday: April 8
Redmond, WA; April 14
SQL Saturday: April 15
The format will be the same for each event. These are intermediate-level workshops. If you’re new to Power BI, just a little self-study should get you ready to optimize your learning experience.
