In this course we’ll start by covering what is DAX, why DAX is so important and how it integrates with Power Pivot 2013. Why use DAX, there is a reason why it has been mentioned over and over for quite some time with Power Pivot and SQL. We’ll discuss the rhymes and reasons of it as well as the history of DAX followed by DAX functions and references. Then we’ll cover the DAX functions category. These categories are Text, Filter, Information, Logical, Date and Time, Math and Trig, and more.
