Last Thursday night I had the pleasure of speaking with Gregory Kramer and his friends at the Madison, WI Power BI User Group. We took an introductory look at how Microsoft’s acquisition of Revolution Analytics is making serious waves across the Microsoft data platform.

There were so many updates to Power BI this month I thought I’d put all the links to the information on the updates in one place so we can get caught up quickly on everything that changed with the tool this month.

Plus, the Lego name tags were epic! 100% without a doubt the coolest name tag ever.
