Power BI Weekly Issue 110: 18th May 2021

Lots of announcements this week:

Not only that, but we've been given the Power BI May 2021 Feature Summary. Main features this month are the new visual tooltip with added drill actions, additions to DQ over Power BI Datasets functionality (lineage view, Q&A support), and a few features reaching GA.

Elsewhere this week, Carmel Eve has described How to use Azure Synapse SQL Serverless to connect Data Lake and Power BI, and Seth Bauer has written a comprehensive blog about How to Represent Your Power BI Skills, giving some sound advice for those thinking about or applying for a role requiring Power BI skills, but really the advice can be applied more generally for any technical skillset.
