Power BI has been a runaway success for Microsoft in terms of adoption and mindshare. At this point, almost everyone is aware of it. Awareness is good, and you may already know Power BI creates great-looking visualizations, or that it runs on Windows, iOS, Android, and the Web. But do you know how to use it? And if you do, are you up-to-date with all the new features of this product that's updated on a monthly basis?

Come to this session for a combination of a quick intro to Power BI (including its technology underpinnings, the costs around it and, of course, how to use it) and a check-in on several newer features, including Bookmarks, Add Column from Examples, Q&A and the latest custom visuals.
