You can download and set up an attendee kit, which consists of the presentation content and nine hands-on labs:
- Use this link to download the English language attendee kit (.zip) locally to your PC (Windows 8, or later). Alternatively, use this link to download the localized attendee kit (.zip) locally to your PC (Windows 8, or later).
- Open the file properties of the zip file, and check "unblock" (Windows may flag the file as potentially untrusted).
- Create a root course folder. We recommend you name it something like "C:\Training". Remember this location, because you'll need to access the course files during the labs. All lab documents refer to this location as <CourseFolder>.
- Extract the PowerBIPRIAD-Attendee.zip file contents to your root course folder.
- In the <CourseFolder>\PowerBIPRIAD\Lab01A folder, open the PDF lab document and follow the lab instructions.
In the localized attendee kit, you will find documents for the following eight languages:
- German (de-DE)
- Spanish (es-ES)
- French (fr-FR)
- Italian (it-IT)
- Japanese (ja-JP)
- Korean (ko-KR)
- Portuguese, Brazilian (pt-BR)
- Chinese, simplified characters (zh-CN)
You're responsible for having your own Power BI account. If you don't already have one, see Sign up for Power BI as an individual. A newly signed up account can benefit from a 60-day trial license.
To complete the labs, you must sign in to Power BI to publish a Power BI Desktop file to a workspace. The publication results in a dataset that's used as a report data source. You will need a Power BI Pro license or Power BI Premium Per User (PPU) license to use a dataset as a report data source.
Some lab tasks involve publishing paginated reports to a Power BI service workspace. You can only open a paginated report in the Power BI service when it's saved to a workspace that has its license mode set to Premium per user or Premium capacity.
