Seriously I don’t even know where to start or how to describe the efforts of all participants.
The level of work being produced is just un-real.
So many amazing techniques on display and what’s even more pleasing to see is the interaction between participants and the Enterprise DNA community.
A massive well done to everyone who took part in challenge 14, I salute you for taking the plunge and giving up your valuable time to participate.
We are covering some serious ground in these challenges and have had some great variety from various industries and scenarios.
The scenarios are always based on projects that our experts and team have worked on first-hand with clients using Power BI.
They present an amazing opportunity for any budding analyst to come along and practice industry related problems.
We at Enterprise DNA believe there is no way better way of building up your power bi skills, portfolio and confidence than tackling real world problems faced by Power BI developers.
The challenges are always designed to help demonstrate the capabilities of Power BI and how flexible you can be with its use.
There are many elements to the challenge, and we encourage you to extract and focus on activities that you are particularly struggling with be that power query, DAX, design etc.
Enterprise DNA firmly believe that practice is one of the best ways to improve your skillset and speed up your learning journey. We know from experience that tackling problems further enhances this journey. The challenges create the perfect opportunity for you to implement and apply these principles.
While we hope the lure of practicing DAX is enough to get you all on board, we also have some great initiatives to win free memberships and some swag. We are always looking to encourage and reward our community for participating. So watch this space as we have some more amazing opportunities lined up for future challenges.
