Power BI Weekly Issue 69: 28th July 2020

If React is part of your toolkit, then you're in luck this week - there's a new Power BI component for React to more easily embed your reports into React applications. The other couple of updates this week regard the new On-premises data gateway July 2020 update in which there's been added support for OAuth authentication via the gateway, and then there's the Power BI Service and Mobile May and June 2020 feature summary rounding up the last couple of months' worth of updates.

Elsewhere this week, Ruth Pozuelo Martinez has demonstrated 20 tricks to finally master the Matrix visualization in Power BI, and David Eldersveld has written a three part series about using Python as an External Tool for Power BI Desktop - here's Part 1.
