Start with Power BI

A lot of people ask me “How and where can I start with Power BI?” This question is on one hand very easy to answer and at the same time it’s not because everyone learns in a different way, has other preferences to learn, and therefore there is no one right answer. Because of that I would like to give an overview of different ways to get into Power BI and keep up to date with our favorite BI tool. I’ll update the list from time to time if new opportunities appear.
