Topic: The Finer Points of DAX
DAX is a functional language. It can be simple to get started but can be challenging to master. It is very common for people to be able to copy and/or read a formula that someone else has written and to basically know how it works, yet lack the deeper understanding to be able to write the formula themselves. In this presentation, Matt Allington will explain the nuances of some of the more important functions in DAX, including
* The different roles of CALCULATE
