LazyDAX V2: Learn DAX from examples

by DAX, Power BI8 comments

Introduction

Learn from examples.

LazyDAX helps you to understand DAX with concretes and simple examples. You can change the existing measures or create yours.
LazyDAX is also an easy dataset for your tests and presentations.

Why LazyDAX?

 

In my DAX journey, I met two kinds of peoples.

Business Analyst (sometimes also Excel Users) who had very good abilities to learn DAX.

And people like me, with a slow learning curve with DAX. (Unfortunately, I’m not so bad with SQL, C#, and a ton of different languages. Yes I’m a developer :))

During our DAX learning, Mathieu Ricour and I built the first version of Lazy DAX. It was a place for us to keep and save our code around a simple and concrete example.

After many months, I’m still using this file on a quasi daily basis. And I’m convinced, it can also help you.

In this second version, I’m sharing with you a list of useful measures and a reusable dataset.

More measures and descriptions are coming soon.
