Sydney Power BI Meetup – June 2021 (Online)

Hello Power BI User Group Members

The June event will have 2 speakers Peter Myers and Chris Webb speaking on “Demystifying Power BI Datasets”.


5:30pm: Power BI Updates

6:00pm: Demystifying Power BI Datasets by Peter Myers and Chris Webb

7:00pm: Q&A and Networking

Topic: Demystifying Power BI Datasets

Speakers: Peter Myers and Chris Webb

When it comes to Power BI datasets, there are often many questions. Like, isn’t DirectQuery and Live Connection the same thing? What’s the difference between a local and remote model? What is chaining?

Join Microsoft Data Platform MVP Peter Myers and Power BI CAT Principal Program Manager Chris Webb to learn about all of this and more. Together, they have over 40 years’ experience delivering analytic solutions on the Microsoft data platform.

In a conversational way, they’ll introduce and define numerous dataset-related terms—and most importantly, explain how they relate to one another. This session will no doubt be valuable for beginners as well as advanced practitioners. We’re sure you’ll learn something unexpected!
