Power BI for Office 365

The Evansville Sharepoint, .NET, and PASS groups will be holding another joint meeting on November 15th, 2013 at 11:30am. We will be meeting in the Browning Events Room B at Evansville Central Library.  Lunch will be provided. Please come and join us.  We will have 2 topics presented.

Microsoft has recently released a preview version of Power BI for Office 365. Power BI allows interaction with Excel and Office 365 using data that is inside and outside of your organization.  Power BI also makes collaboration and analysis available to share on any device. We will be demoing some of the features of Power BI, discussing how to sign up, and where to find more information on this new tool for Office 365. 

Visual Studio LightSwitch contains several new and enhanced features in Visual Studio 2012 and Visual Studio 2012 Update 2.  We'll do a brief "what is LightSwitch again?" overview and touch on the new features in 2012.  

We will also have some giveaways. We look forward to seeing you on Friday.
