Level Up Series: Advanced DAX

Instructor: Ryan Sullivan

Foundations taught us how to remove repetitive, manual work and make impactful insights. Advanced DAX is about making it rain money by better informing decisions!


  • Taught completely in Power BI Desktop
  • If Foundations is a 101 course, hands-on work experience with DAX is 201, and Advanced DAX is 301.
  • This class will teach you how DAX really works, how to build complex reports that are still digestible, and how to use that information to drive your business.


Level Up Series: Power Query for Excel & Power BI

Instructor: Ryan Bergstrom

Copy-paste? Dragging formulas down? SAME THING EVERY WEEK?… No more. Teach your computer how to build your reports for you. Set and forget!


  • This class will teach you how to connect to all of your data (no matter where it lives), shape it so DAX can run automagically, and have your computer remember the steps so you never have to do it again.
  • You don’t need to be an IT professional – most of our students come from an Excel background
  • Taught simultaneously in Excel and Power BI

    1. Nope, the cool stuff I saw in Redmond (and mentioned on twitter) was other stuff. New stuff. Secret stuff I can’t talk about, except to say that there is some cool stuff coming 🙂

  1. Hi guys,

    I have a question. my IT crew installed the new version today. but now I cannot open any workbooks anymore. addin shows up, but as soon as a try to start the powerpivot window it says “Embedded Analysis Services Engine: Could not load embedded PowerPivot data.” I first thought it would be an issue if upgrading v1 workbooks, but it is not – it starts with any empty workbook. so I cannot even built a new one from scretch.
    anyone who had a similar problem – maybe something gone wrong with the upgrade. is there something that needs to be done when installing the new version?
    hope anyone could help.

    thanks a lot
