Mastering DAX Foundations Course
“DAX is simple, but it is not easy”.
The above quote is attributed to a student of Alberto Ferrari, to summarize the difficulty of learning DAX.
DAX is a functional language used in Microsoft Power BI, Excel Power Pivot and SQL Server Analysis Services. Although, similar to what is obtainable to in Microsoft Excel, the internal workings of DAX is different. There are well over 80 Excel functions that are also available in DAX. However, even when some of those functions perform the same tasks on both applications, they use different approaches to complete the tasks.
To be an expert Power BI user, an analyst must be proficient in using DAX to carry out advanced computations for advanced reporting. Unfortunately, most people struggle with this formula language. From inability to author their own formulas, to inability to interpret formula solutions written by others.
This is a 16 hours online course to be taught over 4 days (4 hours per day). This course will provide participants with the best possible foundation to become true DAX gurus.

In this class, we will take a simplistic approach to explain complex concepts, and the participants will be given time in class to practice and test their knowledge on the concepts.
Participants will after the course, be able to author their own formulas to solve complex DAX and will also be able to interpret DAX solutions authored by others.
