DAX Patterns: Second Edition

Marco Russo announces a second edition of DAX Patterns:

Great news! Just one year after releasing the second edition of The Definitive Guide to DAX, we just published a new website, a new book, and a new collection of videos: the second edition of DAX Patterns!

DAX Patterns is a collection of patterns in DAX for Power BI, Analysis Services Tabular, and Power Pivot for Excel. The first edition of DAX Patterns dates back to the end of 2014, and it was based on Power Pivot for Excel. Since then, DAX has evolved with many useful features. Most importantly, Power BI hit the market, and the number of users adopting DAX grew at an exponential rate. When we published the first edition of this book, Power BI had not even been announced yet. Today, most DAX users create a Power BI solution. The new edition of DAX Patterns is thus based on the tool you love: Power BI.

The book looks to be quite useful, and you can get an idea if this content is right for you from the DAX Patterns website. What’s crazy is that they’re offering everything in the book on the website for free, but I’d suggest that if you pick up enough good info from the site, give back by buying a copy of the book or videos.
