Couple quick things today.
First, Howie Dickerman, one of the SuperHeroes of DAX, has written a new version of the DAX whitepaper.
I had a chance to discuss some of it in person with Howie when I was in Redmond. It opened my eyes to a number of things I had been missing. I sadly have not had time to review it in detail yet – there are other things (good things) afoot at PivotStream these days… like, um, I dunno, our first industrial-strength PowerPivot farm in the sky… but I plan to get back to DAX shortly.
In the meantime, I have posted the updated whitepaper in the [link removed due to 404] Samples Gallery out on the FAQ Site.
Also, Denny Lee shared an excellent new poster that displays all the components of the PowerPivot architecture. I’ve also uploaded that to the [link removed due to 404] Samples Gallery.
Note that the poster is HUGE, meant to truly be a poster, so it’s not really something you view in a web page. Hence the PDF format. It’s also available in other formats.
