PowerPivot with Pluralsight

For the last few months I’ve been cooped up here in the Arcane dungeon, working on a new project. And now that’s it’s released I can finally share all the details.

While I’m still happily employed during the days as a BI Architect for Comframe, in my spare time I’ve been acting as a technical advisor to a training company called Pluralsight.

I’ve developed a series of four training modules on PowerPivot for Excel 2010. The first module is an overview, that gives you the basic steps on creating a pivot table using PowerPivot.

Module 2 goes in-depth on working with data behind the scenes. How to add calculations, formatting data, filtering data and more.

In the third module I cover the creation and formatting of Pivot Tables, formatting them for users, using DAX (Data Analysis eXpressions), and how to use Sparklines with PowerPivot data.

In the last module we explore the charting capabilities of PowerPivot, covering various types of charts and ways to format charts. We then use the knowledge we’ve gained over the last four modules to create a realistic dashboard.

If you are already a subscriber to Pluralsight, take a look, the courses are now live. If you aren’t, take a look, Pluralsight has the best training I’ve seen on the net and it’s growing daily.
