Share Bad Practices to Win a Prize
Update: The Community Summit was postponed to June 29 – July 2, 2020, due to the Coronavirus worldwide concerns. Whether you plan to attend in June or not, you have plenty of time to share with me a screenshot of badly-designed reports to win a prize (details below).
But most importantly (subjectively speaking) – I would really be glad to meet you in-person at my session on “Power BI Bad Practices – Learn from the mistakes of others”.
Here is my session abstract:
You can create beautiful Power BI dashboards in minutes, but it takes months or even years to learn how to create sustainable enterprise-grade dashboards that have a lasting impact on your organization. To accelerate the journey, we can learn faster from the mistakes of others and focus on bad practices rather than the good ones. Bad things are likely to imprint in us a powerful emotional memory that will not fade away so quickly. Ready to start? In this demo-packed session, we’ll share bad things that you can do in Power BI: Wrong Pie Charts and overused Treemaps; Missed data-prep opportunities; Flat tables and wrong models; and one big misconception that lead to ill-governed self-service BI practices. Join this session to imprint the bad things you should avoid doing in Power BI, and more importantly to enjoy the demos and have fun.
And here is the interesting part. Would you like to be featured in my session and get a spotlight for your work? Do you want to win Power BI demos worth $200? Share with me screenshots of badly designed Power BI reports that you improved (Please mask any confidential data) and I will feature them during my session and here in my blog with the appropriate credit. Here is how we can do it:
- Option 1: Tweet the screenshot of the report and tell your story. Make sure you include the hashtag #PBIBadPractices and @DataChant.
- Option 2: Send me by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) the screenshot.
- Option 3: Email me two screenshots of the report before and after. The “before” screenshot will represent how the report looked like when you started working on it. The “after” screenshot will show your improved version.
Note: You don’t need to attend the session in order to have your work featured.
The worst 10 reports that will be shared will earn their submitters with $200 credits to purchase demos in my shop.
