Power BI Weekly Issue 156: 10th May 2022

This week we've been told about the New data source and gateway management experience (which is primarily UX changes I believe), and we've been told about the upcoming Changes to the Power BI service – simpler navigation, improvements to lists on Home, and style updates - nothing much of note here other than what's in the title! Elsewhere this week, there are a few developer tips this week. Firstly, Mathias Thierbach has been back on Reid Havens' channel describing Calling the Power BI REST API with VS Code (with Mathias Thierbach) (as a great alternative to using the "Try it" tool in the Power BI REST API docs - which has actually been removed for some reason). Also, James Bartlett has provided a PowerShell script to allow you to Download Report Authored in Browser as PBIX and Marcus Wegener has used pbi-tools to describe how to Copy Power BI data model back to PBIX file.
