Power BI has extraordinary visuals that can be used in reports and dashboards. In this Power BI course, you’ll learn to create insightful visualizations through built-in and customized charts and conditional formatting. You’ll discover how to create a plethora of visualizations such as scatter plots, tornado charts, gauges, and how to visualize everything without overwhelming your audience.
The Audience is KingFree
In this first chapter, you'll get to understand how target audience matters in visualization. You'll also get introduced to Lahman's baseball dataset, which you’ll use in this later in the course.
Getting an Emotional Response
In second chapter you will learn how to build dashboards that connect on an emotional level—so they won't get forgotten about.
Reducing Cognitive Load
In this chapter, we will learn on how human memory works and why it is related to data visualization.
Less is More
