As we all know about we practice and challenge our tableau skills in Workout Wednesday and showcase our work on Tableau Public, but how about PowerBI? Here is a blog to introduce how to do the PowerBI challenge and showcase your PowerBI works.

 

PowerBI Challenges

 

Yes, we are also able to practice and improve our PowerBI skills in Workout Wednesday. Here are the steps:

Power BI Challenges – Workout Wednesday (workout-wednesday.com)

  1. Understand the challenge: The Workout Wednesday challenge is a weekly data visualization challenge designed to help you improve your Power BI skills. Each week, a new challenge is posted on the Workout Wednesday website, along with a sample dataset and instructions on how to complete the challenge. Make sure to read the instructions carefully and understand the requirements of the challenge.
  2. Download the dataset: Once you’ve read the challenge instructions, download the sample dataset provided on the Workout Wednesday website. The dataset will be in a CSV or Excel format, which you can import into Power BI.
  3. Import the dataset into Power BI: Open Power BI and import the dataset into Power BI. You can do this by clicking on “Get Data” in the Home tab of the Power BI ribbon and selecting the appropriate file type.
  4. Clean and transform the data: Before you can create your visualization, you’ll need to clean and transform the data to make it suitable for visualization. Use the Transform Data editor to clean up the data, remove duplicates, and create calculated columns if necessary.
  5. Create your visualization: Once your data is cleaned up, you can start creating your visualization. Use the visualization tools in Power BI to create charts, tables, and other visualizations that tell a story with the data.

Congratulations! You’ve completed the Power BI Challenge on Workout Wednesday and improved your Power BI skills. By participating in these challenges regularly, you can continue to learn new techniques and improve your data visualization skills.
