Latest Enterprise DNA Initiatives

What New Content Do You Want to See in 2021?

Enterprise DNA Members,

@sam.mckay, the eDNA Expert Team and I are hard at work developing the integrated content plan (e.g., Platform Courses, YouTube videos, podcasts, Data Challenges, Problem of the Week, etc.) for 2021. In addition to the outstanding content that @sam.mckay always provides, we are also really excited this year about the wide range of content that will be developed by our recently expanded Expert Team in their areas of speciality.

However, we would very much like to hear your thoughts regarding topics on which you would like to see new or expanded content developed in 2021?

Thanks in advance for your input.

Hi,

Would it be possible to do more Dashboarding & Data Visualization videos? I really like them and would love to see demonstrations using more advance visualization features.

Would also like to watch videos of you working on a Dashboard from scratch while using the Analyst Hub and other features in the External Tools.

Thanks very much

Yusuf.

@YusufGillani,

Thanks very much for your input. The Data Challenges have highlighted this topic as a key content focus, and we have three major portal courses coming out on visualization and design (including a wide range of advanced visualization techniques) in 2021 taught by some of the Data Challenge stars, as well as a variety of YouTube content on these topics.

With regard to your second suggestion, as you’ve seen on the forum and YouTube, External Tools and Analyst Hub are particular obsessions of mine. In addition to some more upcoming YouTube videos on these topics I’ll be posting soon, for Data Challenge #11 @Greg, @JarrettM and I will be teaming up via the new Teams feature in Analyst Hub and coordinating a joint entry solely using the AH tools, the full development of which we will document via videos.

Again, really appreciate your feedback and engagement, and think you’ll be pleased by how well the content we’ve got planned addresses your requests.

Hi,

Not so sure if you’ve already mentioned this but I would also like to see more M Code Video tutorials as well.

The last video Melissa made on the YouTube channel was very insightful!

Thanks very much

Yusuf.

@YusufGillani,

Thanks very much for your input. We are on entirely the same page here, and have made Power Query and M a major content priority for 2021 and beyond.

For a long time we have been (semi-) jokingly badgering @Melissa to write “The Definitive Guide to M”, and she has agreed to one better - a comprehensive video series starting with Power Query basics and progressing all the way through advanced M. This will be a major, multi-year effort that I believe will produce the most comprehensive guide to Power Query and M on the internet (or anywhere else for that matter…). She is already hard at work on the first course in this series, which we are targeting for release this spring.

I encourage everyone to continue to provide this sort of input – we really want to ensure that our content offerings are addressing your biggest needs.

It would be very useful to have a calculate class. Just calculate, it’s such a powerful command and it would be great to have different views and in depth on how to use calculate. It look easy but yet never easy when your actually using it. Think of it as a reference piece, I’m sure it will be very much appreciated and popular.

@ericet,

Thanks very much for your input – we really appreciate hearing from members about content needs.

To better understand your request, I have a couple of follow-up questions:

  1. Have you taken the Mastering DAX Calculations course yet?

Within this course, there is over half an hour of content dedicated solely to the CALCULATE function, with a number of different examples:

  1. If you have been through this course, are there some specific issues/questions regarding the use of CALCULATE that you would like us to address in additional video content?

Thanks!
