Power BI Meetup -Q&A with Marco Russo and Alberto Ferrari – Apr 2021

April 14, 2021 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

This is the official Power BI User Group in Sydney.

The April meetup is going to be a bit different to our previous online sessions. The meetup will consist of 2 parts.

Part 1: Watch the pre-recorded video on Budgeting with Power BI before the live stream session starts. The video can be found on YouTube here:

Part 2: Then we will be hosting a live, online Q&A session with Marco Russo and Alberto Ferrari to talk about any questions related to the video. If we have time, you can also ask other questions, but the objective is to focus on the main topic “Budgeting in Power BI” first.

As most of you know Marco and Alberto are amongst the most knowledgeable experts in the DAX language, and their events are always popular. The idea of this format is that we allow you to watch (and re-watch) the content in advance, and then we dedicate the time together to your live questions.
