Would you like to build a Power BI dataset that could inventory your Power BI workspaces, reports, datasets, and refresh schedule? Would you like to query another dataset to import into your dataset?  In this session I'll show you how to leverage an open-source custom connector that connects to Power BI's REST APIs to do just that.  

This session introduces the open-source Power Query Custom Data Connector for Power BI REST APIs (https://github.com/kerski/powerquery-connector-pbi-rest-api-commercial), how to use it in Power BI Desktop, and I provide you a free Power BI template to get started for your current or next Power BI project.  This session supports both those working with Power BI Commercial or Government Community Cloud.

Lists in SharePoint, Teams, and Microsoft Lists are the backbone and even the front end of solutions from tiny to enterprise wide. So why should they look like spreadsheets from the 90's? List formatting enables you to quickly and easily provide dynamic visualizations elevating your lists from basic data to beautiful reports, dashboards, and more. Go beyond the wizards and jump into Advanced mode!

In this session we'll be emphasizing the code in low-code to show you how to use JSON to transform your columns, views, and list forms. We'll demonstrate integrations with Power Apps, Power Automate, Forms, Teams, and more. We'll look at tailoring views for different users, fancy expressions, provisioning your formats, advanced tools, and even creating miniature applications directly on your modern pages! Whether you're a developer extending your skillset or a power user wanting to take your formatting skills to the next level, you'll leave this session with the tools and resources to get started immediately.
