Power BI Weekly Issue 65: 30th June 2020

Just the one announcement this week - that's the General Availability (GA) of enhanced connectivity for Snowflake, which "includes the ability to connect to Snowflake without an on-premises data gateway, as well as support for Azure Active Directory (AAD) authentication and SSO in DirectQuery mode in the Power BI service". Not bad compatibility! Elsewhere this week, I've written a blog about How to dynamically choose the correct font colour based on a background colour in Power BI tables using a nice bit of colour theory, Parker Stevens has shared part 2 of the "Building a Power BI Admin View" series around obtaining refreshable access tokens, and John White has shown how to Connect to Application Insights and Log Analytics with Direct Query.

This week I'd also like to highlight Power BI Days, which is a free conference run by the community, for the community. In fact, Power BI Days consists of numerous free-to-attend virtual and in-person community events, held all across the world. Additionally, if you're wanting to organize an event, that's possible too - it's still free, and comes with support. Do visit the website to check it out!
