On Wednesday, June 21st, 2023, I will be participating in the Microsoft Fabric AMA (Ask Me Anything) hosted by Microsoft Data Platform User Group Norway.

Microsoft Fabric was launched in public preview in May. It was called the greatest invention since SQL Server and promises to simplify analytics for everyone. Microsoft used Build, one of its flagship events, to launch Microsoft Fabric to much fanfare - and surrounded by lots of hype. But is the hype real?

Register for the event on Meetup 🤓

Microsoft Fabric AMA (Ask Me Anything) with ALL the Norwegian MVPs!

For the first time ever, all the Microsoft Data Platform MVPs from Norway will be on stage together. I’m so excited! 🤩 We have all kinds of backgrounds, experiences, perspectives and opinions, and this is your chance to ask all your difficult questions. Or all your basic questions, there are no “dumb” questions!

You’re also welcome to join us for a little summer gathering after the event. We’ll enjoy something cold to drink, chat, network, and have fun! Hope to see you there 🥳

How to find a Dataset ID in Power BI

Today, I had to get a single dataset ID from a report I had deployed to the Power BI Service. I quickly realized I had no idea where or how to get it! Turns out, it’s super fast to find - if you know where to look 😅

Since I had to click around for a bit, do some searches, and get sidetracked in the REST APIs and PowerShell Cmdlets before I finally realized the ID was staring me right in the face all along, I figured I’d share this quick tip. That way, the next time I search for it, I might find my own blog post 😂 And who knows, maybe it can help one or two others?
