Business Consultant, Power BI Visualization specialist
What did I learn from 26 dashboard challenges?
After participating in 26 dashboard competitions, it is now my mission to convince as many people as possible of the power of dashboard competitions. Far too often I encounter people who have started a competition dashboard but have not submitted it. They are too insecure, their dashboards are not nice enough, not good enough, or they are simply not ready for it yet. While most people will probably never be ready for it in their own eyes.
During the session, I will discuss the what, how, and why to participate in these competitions. I’ll show you why participating makes you stronger and what you should pay attention to if you actually do participate. To make the session more interactive, I will show polls in between and a demo of an effective challenge portfolio.
This session is intended for beginning Power BI developers but is also very suitable for more experienced developers who don’t like to show their work to others either.
