Power BI Weekly Issue 178: 11th October 2022

Just the one announcement this week, which is about Deployment pipelines – announcing "Deployment History" feature and "Azure DevOps extension" GA. Elsewhere this week, James Broome has written another element of the Insight Discovery series, with Part 5 - Deliver insights incrementally with data pipelines, Gavin Pedersen has described Power BI Workspace Strategy for Self Service within Premium Capacities, and Andrzej Leszkiewicz has given us a bit of fun with Power BI Pacman.

Finally, I'm excited to share that my colleague Ian Griffiths and I are running a free 1-day, in-person workshop about creating a modern data lake (house) architecture with full DevOps on Azure Synapse Analytics in London (UK) on Wednesday Nov 2nd 2022. This is an in-person (not virtual) event. Full workshop agenda can be found here and to register your interest use this form. Spaces are limited, so register quickly!
