Modeling data for rookies
Before playing with Power BI to build the coolest report ever created, there is always the first mandatory step of importing data into the model. Of course in Live connection or Direct Query, very few transformations are required but in import data mode, everyone should take the necessary time to create a clean model. 
Actually 70% of the work, in building a report, is on the creation of a good model. Otherwise, the creation of measures and interaction between different tables will be painful.

In this session I will show to everyone the few rules to follow when building a model and the many useful features in Power Query to quickly clean your data.

What is a dimension table? What is a fact table? How to build them? How to create an index? How to make Power BI recognize automatically your relationship?

You will be an expert in no time!

How to make sure that the end-user of your Power BI report understands the information well? There is way more involved in presenting your data then only a chart. Think about interaction, presenting the right information at the right time and much more!
By using Story telling it is possible to tell the story behind the data. Where does the information need to come from and how did we get to an answer? The complete story line covered in your reports and dashboards to make sure the data is interpreted in the right way by the users.

The Secret to Mastering DAX
To get the most out of DAX calculations in Power BI, a good understanding of context is indispensable. In this session you’ll learn about the characteristics of different kinds of context in Power BI models: row context, query context, and filter context. We’ll also discuss the behavior of DAX functions within different contexts.

In complex DAX calculations, multiple contexts can be active at the same time. To really understand what is going on, it is important to be able to identify these. Therefore we’ll discuss DAX functions that activate and transform context. In short, after this session context in Power BI will have no secrets for you anymore!
