Learn the DAX FundamentalsStart your journey to becoming a DAX master with this introductory course on DAX. You’ll learn fundamental concepts and best practices for implementing DAX in your reports.
Create Calcualted Columns, Measures and TablesYou’ll learn to write DAX code to generate calculated columns, measures, and tables while learning supporting knowledge around ‘context’ in Power BI. Finally, we’ll round off the course by introducing time-intelligence functions and show you how to use Quick Measures to create complex DAX code.
Let’s take the first step in your DAX mastery journey!
Getting Started with DAXFree
In this chapter, you’ll learn how to create custom calculations using Microsoft’s formula language, DAX (Data Analysis Expressions). You’ll learn how to expand your source tables with calculated columns, before progressing to writing calculated measures to help summarize your data.
Context in DAX Formulas
In this chapter, you'll learn about context in Power BI and how it plays an important part when building reports. Next, we'll learn how to use iterator functions to evaluate data at a row level. We'll then introduce you to the CALCULATE function to help you filter your data and finally, we'll show you how to use variables to make writing DAX functions more efficient.
Working with Dates
In this chapter, you'll learn the power of DAX's date and time intelligence functions. You'll be able to use these functions in actions, as well as use quick measures to create complex DAX code.

Dax formulas is not that easy to understand, but this course introduced this issue in a very simple and clear way. I'm excited to see the coming courses of this track.

I've come from a R / Python / SQL background, and this course was very helpful. I still find DAX and Power BI conceptually difficult, because I find it hard to visualise what's happening, nonetheless, this course got me going.
