UK Community Day – Power BI – Liverpool
The Foresight Centre
16/08/2018 from 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

This free one-day hackathon, on Thursday 16th August, will be a fantastic opportunity to learn to use Power BI. No experience necessary.

If you haven’t looked at Power BI yet, we’ll get you up to speed with introductory sessions. We’ll also have some more advanced topics. We’ll take a break and then it’s over to you (so bring your laptop!). You can work on your own solutions or use one of our project suggestions, as individuals or in teams. Experts will be there to help you through the process of getting everything working.

Thanks to the event’s sponsors, we’ll have some swag to give away at the event and you’ll also have a chance to make a presentation on what you or your team have been working on, and we’ll have some great prizes for the best ideas.

The event is in the Chandler Room of the Foresight Centre, Liverpool. The venue is easy to get to via car, bus or train, see the venue website for access information.

You will need to bring along your own laptops and will hopefully have already set it up ready to go. We’ll provide the experts, power, caffeine and lunch to get you going. There are only 30 spaces so register soon to avoid disappointment.

If you have any dietary requirements, please add a comment when registering for the hackathon.
