Power BI Weekly Issue 8: 21st May 2019

This week our very own James Broome has written a brilliant blog explaining How to create a Power BI workspace in an Azure DevOps Pipeline using Powershell, laying it out step-by-step and alluding to the gotchas. This week, we've also been given the Power BI Desktop May 2019 Feature Summary which includes information about the new Performance analyzer pane which I'm sure a lot of you will find very useful! Elsewhere, there have been some advancements around Trusted Third Party Connectors for Power BI, making it easier for you to use the connectors you've built and trust.
