  1. Hi Chris,
    First thanks for all you blogs, videos and presentations; they are probably the best material I have used in my career in BI. I purchased this course and as always, enjoying and deriving great value with every video.

    Now to the point of my comment, in 2017 PASS Summit you gave a presentation on Power BI and SSAS MD which I am extremely interested in (being a SSAS MD loyalist and hopeful), do you think you might add a video to this Power BI course that might embed some of that material? If not is there any blog or place I can see your comments from the presentation. I can wait a year when PASS publishes there 2017 videos for free, or pay $695 to get it early (its the only video in 2017 that I really want to see early.) Anyways, thought I would check with you before moving in that direction.

    Thanks again for all your great SSAS MD material and now adding Power BI to the mix.

    • Hi Greg, it’s unlikely I’ll be adding that content to my Power BI course I’m afraid. However I will be doing a slightly shortened version of this session at SQLBits at the end of February, and SQLBits always make the videos of their sessions available for free at http://www.sqlbits.com/content/ (although they have had several major screw-ups where the videos have been lost…), so you could wait a few months until then. Otherwise I can send my slide deck to you at the gmail account I see you’ve used here, if you like – it doesn’t have all of the detail or the demos of course, but it should still be useful.

      • Yes, I would really appreciate the slide deck and will look forward to the sqlbits presentation. I have seen some of your presentations from there before.

        Again, thanks for all your great work it has helped me immensely.
