Session Recordings: Advanced Data Transformation Techniques, and Power BI Options for the Enterprise

Absolutely amazing….  The Microsoft Data Insights Summit was a series of one great learning experience after another.  My greatest impressions of the summit were that the Power BI community is coming together as a cohesive group of data professionals.  I think Power BI and Microsoft data platform have a solid story now as a solution rather than just a product and it was apparent that business people and technologies are taking it seriously.
In my post before the Data Insight Summit, I shared an overview of the two sessions we were preparing to deliver.  It took the organizers only one day to post all the session recordings from the entire conference for public viewing.  Let me say that again… every session, in its entirety, is available to watch for free online.  Here are my two sessions.

From the Keynote at the Microsoft Data Insights Summit

In sitting up front in the Data Insights Summit waiting for the keynote to begin.  It’s Monday, June 12, 2017.  I’ll update this post with announcements.  We’ve been told to expect some important news and announcement today.  Internet connectivity is pretty spotty so you may see some updates later in the keynote session.
I’m sitting in the Press section with fellow bloggers, who are also sending updates from the Summit keynote.  Check out their notes as well.

Microsoft Data Insights Summit Live Streaming & Free Sessions

If you are fortunate enough to be attending the Microsoft Data Insights Summit in Seattle along with about 2,000 others on June 12 & 13, I’ll look forward to seeing you there.  This will be a great community event and a chance to meet, network and learn from well-known speakers, authors and product team leaders responsible for the best data analytics tools in the industry.  The summit has been sold-out for a few weeks.  If you can’t make it to Seattle to be there in person, you can still attend the conference!  I don’t just mean that you can watch a few cherry-picked sessions and keynote addresses…  You can watch every session for free.  Selected sessions, which do include the keynote addresses, will be streamed lived during the conference but all of the sessions are recorded and will be available within two weeks after the last sessions wrap-up on June 13.  This an awesome learning experience.  I will post links and more details here about the recorded sessions after they become available.
If you are going to the summit, please attend my two sessions:
