The Power BI World Tour - Sydney Q&A with Ankit Patria, BI Consultant

By Akshay Anikhindi posted 24 days ago


The upcoming Power BI World Tour in Sydney on 6-7 November will have over twenty-seven educational sessions led by Industry Experts. But what is an Industry Expert? These are active members of the Power BI community who have volunteered to share what they've learned through their years of industry experience by speaking at events, writing articles and leading webinars. Their knowledge and expertise make them trusted resources in the community.

One of such expert presenters at The Power BI World Tour is Ankit Patria, BI Consultant! Follow him on Twitter here:


A "golden nugget" attendees will take away from my session (not found in the agenda!):

s part of my session users will witness Power BI ability to live-stream data. I will be conducting survey of users who have experience in the topic of my session and will live stream that data in Power BI.

I am looking forward to:

Meeting fellow Power BI enthusiasts whom I have known from Twitter, followed their work / blog posts but never met in person.

My advice for Power BI users attending the World Tour:

Research list of presentations and shortlist ones you’re interested in before attending the event. That way you will have clear layout of sessions you want to attend, room they are held in and time so you don’t miss the ones you absolutely want to attend.

My personal World Tour agenda:

‘Power BI Embedded’ and ‘Dig into Map Visualisation’ are the sessions I would not want to miss.
