Power BI Weekly Issue 235: 29th November 2023

No official announcements this week after the Ignite influx, although Darren Gosbell has shared the v3.0.10 Release of DAX Studio with a couple of updates and a bunch of fixes - so upgrade if you can! Otherwise, Sandeep Pawar has written a useful blog about Controlling Direct Lake Fallback Behavior, Alberto Ferrari has described how to Compute accurate percentages with row-level security in Power BI, and Bas Dohmen has shared an engaging introductory video about the New Button Slicers in Power BI.

Oh, and you may have seen that the SQLBits team has started announcing some of the training days that are going to be held on Tuesday 19th March next year at the start of the conference which runs up until Saturday 23rd. I'm very pleased to announce that my colleague Barry Smart and I will be presenting the training session DataOps: How to Deliver Data Faster and Better with Microsoft Cloud, talking about what you can do to bolster your data platform in the cloud. We'd love to see you there!
