SQLBits is one of the best Microsoft data platform conferences around, and last week’s event in Manchester was particularly good. As usual, videos of almost all of the sessions are available for everyone to view for free online (no registration required) here:
There were lots of Power BI and Analysis Services related sessions, so I thought I’d call out a few:
- If you’re interested in the new calculation groups feature in SSAS 2019 that I blogged about last week, you should definitely watch Christian Wade’s two-part session here and here (part two has all the juicy details in), which also gives some details about other upcoming features such as XMLA endpoints. Kasper’s session here covers a lot of the same topics.
- There’s more insight into Microsoft’s Power BI roadmap and thinking in the Q&A session with Christian, Kasper and Adam here
- Marco and Alberto always do great sessions, and Alberto’s session on Aggregations here and Marco’s session on many-to-many relationships here are up to their usual high standards.
- My session on Power BI Dataflows here sums up my current thoughts about them.
Of course there’s lots more there (more than I have had a chance to watch) so let me know if there are other sessions that are good!
