  • Learn Microsoft’s secret weapon behind Power Pivot & Power BI: DAX
  • You don’t need to be an IT professional – most of our students come from an Excel background

APRIL 17 - 18

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

Hi folks!  I have a cool new (and overdue!) DAX technique article queued up for Thursday morning, but today I wanted to quickly remind everyone of our upcoming class schedule.

My Upcoming San Fran Class – Early Bird Discount Closes Thursday

The Early Bird for San Francisco (both the 2-day Foundations and and the 1-day Advanced DAX) ends this Thursday February 9th.  Save $150 by reserving your spot today, and I’ll see you next month.

(There’s also an “off-menu” Group version of the Early Bird discount, so if you have a group of 3+, please reach out to [email protected])

Special San Fran Bonus – Finlan and the (Microsoft) Jets!

Chris Finlan of MicrosoftAs a special bonus, members of the Microsoft BI engineering team will be onsite during the Foundations San Francisco Course.  Fronted by the infamous Chris Finlan, there will be a special after-hours feedback and discussion session to elicit product input from YOU. If you are signed up for the course, please send an email to [email protected] to be a part of this feedback group!

And never fear, we will ALSO be doing the famous Social “Mixer” after-hours event as well – hang out with myself, other members of the P3 team, and even better – your fellow students.  Providing a rare sense of belonging (and networking!) in a relaxed and informal atmosphere, this is a longtime favorite of past students.

    1. Hey Nick! If there’s demand that justifies it, I’ll definitely come back. Are you aware of a Cleveland Cadre of data-gene folks just dying for some empowerment? 🙂

  1. Hi, Rob! Two of my colleagues have attended your courses and more are interested. So let us know if you might add a DC stop to your schedule. There is definitely interest, and we could spread the word to the other NGOs as well.
