Edition 2 of Free Book: Power BI from Rookie to Rock Star


As promised, here is the second edition (March 2017) of Power BI book; from Rookie to Rock Star as PDF. We are still working on other methods of sharing this book (Kindle, paperback…). In this new version March’s posts are added which are; M or DAX? Content Packs, Shape Map, and IF or Filter in DAX. There are still parts of this book that needs to be updated (because that part is written some months ago and with the fast pace of changes in Power BI those parts are dated now. More updates on those are coming along). We have also heard from some kind volunteers that wanting to give us a hand in reviewing the grammar and syntax of the book, so next versions will be with better quality.

Edition one (which published in Feb 2017 – only a month ago), downloaded more than 5000 times.

Here you can download the second version of the book;
