Course Updates and News

Welcome to DAT207x: Analyzing and Visualizing Data with Power BI!

I want to welcome you to DAT207x: Analyzing and Visualizing Data with Power BI. My name is Jonathan Sanito. I work as a content developer for Microsoft, and I'll be your host for this course.

In this course, you will learn how to connect, explore, and visualize data with Power BI. Power BI Desktop provides a free-form canvas for drag-and-drop data exploration as well as an extensive library of interactive visualizations, simple report creation, and fast publishing to the Power BI service.

This course is taught in short, lecture-based videos, complete with demos, quizzes, and hands-on labs. The Power BI product team will guide you through Power BI end-to-end, starting from how to connect to and import your data, author reports using Power BI Desktop, publish those reports to the Power BI service, create dashboards, and share to business users so that they can consume the dashboards through the web and their mobile devices.

To get started, view the Course page and view the topics in Start Here!, which will help you learn how to navigate the course content and get oriented with what to expect.

It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here',
