In this breakout session, you'll learn the basics of the DAX language, Power BI’s modeling language. Belinda will introduce you to the concept of calculated columns, measures and basic data modeling, with some practical examples. This introduction will cover basic calculations and an overview of all the scalar and table functions. This session has practical examples for business analytics and users.  To the Developer, DAX feels like a programming language; to the user, DAX feels like Excel formulas.
