Learning DAX Measures – the “Spicy Function” Scale
Is There a Preferred Way To Learn DAX Measures?
I’m glad you asked :) Actually, I do get asked this quite often – in email, on Twitter, and in person at events like last week’s PASS Summit in Seattle. I promised the folks at my Birds of a Feather lunch table that I would blog about the approach that I take in my consulting/training engagements.
I then, of course, promptly forgot. Good thing Phil reminded me today in Twitter, because it gave me an opportunity to put together that menu mockup above. Which clearly is where my time is best spent while watching Monday Night Football.
So, here it is. The official PowerPivotPro technique, refined by decades spent in the trenches of DAX. But first, some background.
