‘Build Your Own’ Focus Conference: Customized Power BI Training

By Delaney Freer posted Mar 26, 2018 04:47 PM


We all have unique needs when it comes to our jobs. It can be difficult to find ways to customize your education, but Focus, held May 21-24, 2018 in Indianapolis, provides just that! at! 

Focus does things a little differently than our traditional conferences - It is split up into four, two-day mini-conferences. All Power BI, Microsoft Dynamics 365, AX, CRM and NAV users are invited to join their peers, Microsoft and technical experts in the "Crossroads of America" where you can pick and choose which Focus conference to attend, best suited to your skills and interests.

Monday, May 21- Tuesday, May 22, 2018

Wednesday, May 23- Thursday, May 24, 2018

Create your dream combo
Customize your training experience at Focus based on what products you use, the industry you work in, and your role! Are you interested in learning about multiple products? Register for additional days! (Note: You are able to attend user group sessions happening concurrently for free.) Then within each conference, customize your schedule even further via targeted, role-based learning tracks. It's almost like the Subway sandwich of conferences - you can create many different combinations that offer YOU a unique conference customized to fit YOUR needs.

Look at your Power BI track options:

  • Administrators
  • Analysts
  • Business Users
  • Academy class: PowerApps – Build Custom PowerApps
Now let's look at some scenarios... Say you're:
  • A Power BI user in a developer role who is interested in learning more about PowerApps. Register for PUG, attend sessions in the Analyst track, and add on the 'Build Custom PowerApps' Academy One-Day Workshop for deeper training. 
  • A Power BI business user who is interested in learning more about Dynamics 365/CRM. Register for PUG, attend sessions in the Business User track (including Hands on Labs!) and add on two additional days of D365UG/CRMUG training. 
Isn't that fun? 
It's just like building out that delicious sandwich from Subway - you select what you want and leave out what's not important to you. Yes, there's some overlap of conference days and Academy sessions, but that's to help you get the most out of your time in Indianapolis! We don't want to limit your time to only one track and one topic - if your interests overlap, so should your training. 

When hunger hits
Focus is perfect for those who are hungry to learn more about the products they work in every day. Each session is a 90-minute, deep-dive, covering beginner-to-advanced topics. You won’t find training like that anywhere else! To wrap it up (sorry for all the sandwich puns), your peers hope to see you at Focus this May in Indianapolis for customized Power BI training:
