Power BI World Tour Coming

I am excited to be presenting at the Power BI World Tour in New York and San Francisco. This is going to be a great event with many different sessions.  Take a look at the information below and hopefully can attend one of the events I will be at, but if those dates don't work there are a few other options available.

What is the Power BI World Tour?
The Power BI World Tour is a local two day technical conference targeted for the newbie/business user, business analyst, super user, or IT / Administrator of Power BI. Our goal is to bring value added content that is relevant and timely that will take your knowledge of Power BI to the next level, give you an opportunity to network with peers and Industry Experts, and tweak your dashboards so they give your organization the extra edge.

Who is the target audience for the Power BI World Tour?
Our goal is to have something in the World Tour for everyone. For those that are brand new, they will get the chance to learn the fundamentals of Power BI and hopefully by day 2, walk away with your first dashboards developed for your business.

For the Business Analyst, take your usage of Power BI to the next level by learning how to create enhanced visuals relevant to your business situation, automate, secure and distribute your information, and get in early on the Power Apps & Flow train. Additionally, get access to Microsoft MVPs and Microsoft employees that can help answer your burning questions.

If you are more on the developer side and wanting to take your knowledge of the back end or developing within Power BI, this is the place for you. We’ll have experts to challenge and debate the best use of models and coding.
