Learn with the Nerds
Upcoming Free Live Event
Learn with the Nerds conferences take place live every two months on Pragmatic Works’ YouTube channel (past conferences can be viewed there, too). Each event is around three hours long and created to be hands-on experience — so be prepared to use your laptop to click along and walkthrough different examples. There are live instructors to answer questions during the event and free materials related to the topic are provided.
Everything in Power BI is more complicated if you don’t build a good data model. Business Intelligence consultants spend an entire career learning how to build data models, but NOT you! Understanding the fundamentals of dimensional modeling (Star Schema) can get you very far in Power BI.

What You’ll Learn:
• What is a Star Schema?
• Building Facts and Dimensions
• Understanding Relationships
