Python in Power BI Desktop

David Eldersveld dives into using Python as an external tool in Power BI:

Why use Python as an external “tool”? Even though Python isn’t a “tool” in the same sense as the “Big 3” community tools focused this month, I want to show how versatile the External Tools feature is. I also want to encourage people to use imagination and also explore how Power BI isn’t really as closed as some people think–at least the data model…

Some of these ideas are not exclusive to Python, but there’s enough variety in the Power BI and data science communities for people to possibly figure out if some of this might be useful within the context of their own environments, skills, and organizations.

David also follows up with a series of sample ideas.
