Only the most dedicated data professionals are willing to invest their personal time and spend any part of a weekend improving their skills. Having organized many SQL Saturday events, I know that there is a big difference between those who punch out on the proverbial time clock on Friday and those who love working with data so much that they will invest their personal time on a Saturday. One of the greatest examples of this kind of dedication is the group who participate in the weekly Power BI Live Stream from Guy In A Cube.
When Adam invited me to participate in the weekly Guy In A Cube Power BI livestream on Oct 23, I was elated. I am honored to join. If you are not already familiar with the Saturday morning live stream, you can join by subscribing to the Guy In A Cube YouTube channel. The channel is member-supported. Patrick and Adam do all of this outside of their day jobs at Microsoft and then member donations help cover their costs. I encourage you to support the channel with a donation but it is not a requirement. Even without supporting the channel, you can attend the hour-long livestream. Everyone can chat and submit questions during the first half and then the second half of the session is open for members to submit their questions.
So, why am I going to be “in the cube” rather than joining remotely? Well, Houston is one of the stops in our DataOnTheRoad journey in the Data Bus! I’m interviewing Adam and other data professionals as we tour the country, working on the road, on the way to the Orlando Live! conference in November.
