Well, literally, it all started with a tweet from Amir Netz – the father of SSAS and Power BI…
It seems like November 2018 will be a huge Power BI month with many new features and extensions around the Power BI universe.
Matthew Roche introduced the hashtag #Powervember and I think it is a good idea to use it whenever another new Power BI feature is mentioned on twitter in this month!
In order to have an overview about the announcements made in this month I plan to collect them in this post (I will update it regularly throughout the month).
