Table of contents


As a DAX developer you’ve probably written many measures, expressions and code for calculated columns. But, DAX is also a full featured and powerful query language for retrieving data in a table format, much like SQL. There is much more to being a professional DAX developer than just writing measures.
The goal of this course is to teach the student what a complete DAX query is and how to read and write one. You’ll learn how a query is constructed, the tools available to execute your queries, exporting data and all the various DAX table functions available to help you create and manipulate data. We’ll then help make the transition from being a T-SQL developer to a DAX developer a bit easier by comparing common query scenarios.
Finally you’ll have a change to test your knowledge with 15 questions and exercises.
