Since I started DataChant on December 2015, and let Power BI and Power Query to slowly possess my professional life, I have firsthand witnessed the new thrill of empowerment by many Power BI and Excel users. Unexpectedly, I also found a stronger force – The power of the community, and the empowerment of sharing.
As we are all data crunchers, I wanted to share with you the monthly number of visitors at DataChant. You are probably here somewhere, counted as a visitor in the bar chart below. Thanks to you, I was fortunate to learn in the most exciting way – by sharing. So big THANK YOU.
Since I started, several factors helped me to reach the Power BI community. In Jan 2017 I was awarded as an MVP, joined Avanade, kept my weekly blogs, and searched for opportunities to speak. But the main factor for the growth in readers is the constant growth of our community. Last month DataChant reached 9470 monthly visitors. And this is just the beginning.
So, today – I am excited to share the news – I have signed a contract with Pearson to write a new Microsoft Press book on Power Query. The book is planned to be part of Microsoft Business Skills series, which includes Marco Russo’s and Alberto Ferrari’s great books:
