Louisville SQL Server and Power BI User Group



Welcome to the Louisville SQL Server Users Group! We represent the SQL Server community in Louisville, the surrounding metropolitan area, and throughout most of Kentucky. As a technical users group, we focus on monthly meetings, but also provide networking, learning opportunities, speaking opportunities, training, and collaboration for SQL Server professionals throughout the Ohio Valley area. Our monthly meetings occur on the second Thursday of each month, either at lunchtime in the downtown Louisville area or in the evening outside downtown. This alternating approach to meeting times and locations allows us to support as many of our users as possible and provides different venue and time options for our meetings and our attendees. We also partner with various volunteer groups to bring special events to the area, such as SQL Saturdays. Those events typically draw large crowds of SQL Server professionals from Kentucky, Ohio, Indiana, Tennessee, and beyond!

Power BI - The One Power Tool to Rule Them All?

Join us on Thursday, May 11th for the next meeting of the Louisville SQL Server and Power BI Users Group! We will meet at the Humana facility. Meeting information is as follows:

TopicPower BI - The One Power Tool to Rule Them All? 

Description:  There have been a lot of Power this and Power that tools over the years from Microsoft.  So many different tools, versions, methods of sharing to keep track.  A lot of the functionality of those various different tools have been poured into Power BI.  Doing this has made it a fairly easy transition from one toolset to another.  In this session we'll do some hands on learning of building and sharing of visually stunning reports and dashboards.  Perhaps at the end of the session you'll be calling Power BI your precious?  No?  Maybe not, but we'll have fun learning the capabilities of BI tool that is constantly getting better.
