Skylanders Power View Workbook

I had a lot of requests for the Skylanders BI Application I showed off at the BI Power Hour, so I’ve made it available on skydrive. For those that missed it, the “app” is an Excel workbook which uses Power View (on top of Power Pivot) that I created to help my kids made better decisions as to which toys they should buy.

BI Power Hour at PASS Summit 2013

A big thank you to the PASS Summit 2013 attendees who made our BI Power Hour a great success! I have to admit I was a little worried when we lost all power 15 minutes before the session started (highly ironic that we lost power before the BI Power Hour devoted to Power BI), but I was encouraged when the audience started planning a hostile takeover of Paul Randal’s session room next door. but everything came back up just in time. We packed the ballroom, showed off some great functionality,  and only had one injury from the all of the flying swag. Reading through all of the #BIPH tweets after the session was very entertaining – we really appreciate all of the audience participation. This might have been our best Power Hour yet!
