7 reasons DAX is not easy
DAX is simple, but it is not easy. I cannot remember how many times I read this sentence on social media, attributed to me. For good reason: I have repeated this sentence at almost every classroom course I delivered over the years, at conferences, user group meetings… it is my mantra.
The sentence itself is not mine. It came as the answer to a question I routinely ask my students at the end of a training: “What do you think of DAX now?”. The course was in Dublin, around 10 years ago, and a student answered that. I stole his sentence, and it became a mantra for both my DAX students and myself. This sentence is a powerful synthesis of DAX.
