Tying Meetup To Power BI

Reza Rad shows how to integrate Meetup data into Power BI:

In the documentation of this service in Meetup mentioned that Time column is:

time = UTC start time of the event, in milliseconds since the epoch

That means it is timestamp formatted. Timestamp value is number of seconds from epoch which is 1970-01-01 00:00:00. I have previously written about how to change timestamp value to date time and it is fairly easy with adding seconds to it. However for this case our value is not seconds, it is milliseconds so I have to first divide it by 1000.

This is pretty cool.  We’re starting up a Power BI meetup in the Triangle area, so it’ll be fun hosting a Power BI Meetup where we use Power BI to read Meetup data.
