What is new and exciting in Power BI

With weekly and monthly releases, there are a lot of fantastic new features to explore in Power BI. In this session, we will review what’s been released lately, including the new collaboration features in the cloud-based service, the new authoring and modeling features of Power BI Desktop, extending your reach to mobile applications, new Power BI resources, and finally what’s new for developers leveraging the Power BI platform.

We’re also going to try something new and exciting: fielding all the question as an AMA on the community site. This way not only will you get to see all the questions that everybody asks, but also there will be a historical log of the answers that you can easily go back and refer to later!
