March 2022 General Meeting

This month's user group meeting will take place on Tuesday, February 22nd, 2022.

Topic: Understanding DAX – It’s All About the Context

How many times have you created a Power BI report and gotten an unexpected or inconsistent result, then spent an absurd amount of time trying to figure where the result came from? This happens with almost everyone when they start writing DAX. The key to understanding DAX is context, evaluation context. This session won’t provide the magic bullet to becoming a master at DAX, but will help you understand evaluation context, so the next time you create a measure, the result will be not only consistent, but expected.
