Introduction to Power BI Desktop by Dustin Ryan

Power BI is Microsoft's new, cloud-based, analytics and reporting tool but as with any new technology there is lots for us to learn! In this session, we'll take an introductory look at Power BI Desktop, the main authoring and design tool for Power BI. By the end of this session, you'll have a better idea of the capabilities of Power BI Desktop and how Power BI Desktop can be used to consume, transform, and visualize data.
