Bobby P 221 Reputation points

Just looking for some good Power BI resources and education materials...web sites...YouTubes

And is there a separate Forum for Power BI? Because I cannot seem to tag anything with "Power BI" here.

Thanks in advance for your review and help.

    Learning Power BI is divided into several stages.

    If it's just for creating dashboards you can get basic understanding in a day or two.

    If want Extract, Transform, Load and DAX capabilities you'll spend a week or so depending on your data background and experience with Power Query.

    If want the full gamut of raw to distribution handling with ETL, modelling, analysis, presentation, publication, maintenance and curation you're going to need a few months to get into it.

    • The resources from Microsoft Learn can help you get started quickly with Power BI.
    • Search Maven Analytics on Udemy. That team provides unparalleled training for so many different platforms.
    • Search Curbal on YT.
    • Start here and follow the learning paths for the PL-300 certification. Even if you aren't looking to get certified, it's a great place to get an overview of the skills that are needed for an analyst using Power BI.
    • urther you can go to linkedin platform, search for power bi interview questions there are lot of resources related to power bi available on linkedin.
    • The journey of learning Power BI from scratch.
