Reza explains things so well and easy to understand and goes at a pace everyone can follow. He also reads the room and can tell if we like or don’t like something and adjusts so that it makes sense to us.
|I was a new Power BI developer creating a set of dashboards. The task quickly became more complex than I anticipated. I contacted Reza and he helped me refine the architecture and complete the dashboards. They now work and have a sound architecture that permits me to maintain and modify them. Reza is super knowledgeable and a great teacher and very enjoyable to work with. He is always calm and upbeat. He added tremendous value in a small amount of time.It was definitely worth it. I highly recommend him.|
|Really enjoyed the course, learnt lots within a short period of time and would recommend to anyone wanting to learn about the basics of BI and AI. Will do more courses with RADACAD in the future|
|The PowerBI training with Reza was fantastic. He set a good pace for all, even those of us with some existing knowledge of PowerBI. The training set us up on day one to begin building basic visuals, and built on this on day two to cover a full range of visual options. Reza’s knowledge of the platform, including recent additions and changes, made him invaluable as a trainer, as he was able to recommend solutions based on our particular needs. He made the content simple and accessible for us, even where Power Query and DAX were required. Radacad also offers a wealth of publicly-available knowledge through their blog posts, for those who want to continue learning. I cannot recommend the course enough and would happily choose Radacad again.|
The course was an excellent investment overall, it exceed my expectations. It was well paced and presented. The instructor, Reza Rad, was excellent and was able to answer all my questions and explain complex idea in a manner that was easy to understand and follow. I had been using Power BI Desktop for a number of months prior to taking this course, but wish I had attended it sooner! The course structure of 1 day of overall Power BI and followed by 4 days of more intensive instruction on the various parts of Power BI allowed for a basic understanding of the whole, and then more comprehensive learning. The live-on-line experience worked well technically and allowed for questions and problem-solving with the instructor. I learned a lot about Power BI and this course gave me a great foundation for using Power BI to clean, model, design, and share reports using a variety of visualizations that will provide business intelligence to my company. I would recommend this course to anyone wanting to learn Power BI either as a starting point or even after you have used the tool to deepen your understanding and build your skill-set.
|We have started to use Microsoft Power BI and whilst Microsoft tutorials are helpful, if you are not used to DAX then it is very difficult to get your head around and there is little other resources that don’t cost an arm and a leg. I had a call with Reza who made my life so much easier in just under an hour! Any time spent speaking to Reza will be well worth it – I have saved hours of trying to get my head around our dashboards by getting some very useful tips and explanations on why things are done the DAX way! Not only that but he is very patient and straight forward. Highly recommended!|
|Reza does not just know Power BI like the back of his hand, he is the most commercially aware BI person I know. He understands that companies work in the real world and that data isn’t always clean and needs manipulation for it to work and be useful. When Reza worked on our project, nothing phased or flustered him, he always came up with solutions for problems that seemed to me as insurmountable. Can’t recommend him enough, invest in Reza as he will not only save you a whole heap of time, but he comes up with long lasting and very powerful Power BI solutions for your business.|
As part of SQL Saturday Auckland 2016 I attended an “Analytics with Power BI and R.” pre-con with Leila. Leila took the class’s knowledge from rudimentary to competent in a day. We first looked at R, the language and the software. Once these skills were obtained we started to look at Power BI and the integration that it has with R. We worked through a few examples and Leila answered all of the class’s questions and offered to provide supplementary material for some of the more advanced questions. I left the class feeling that my R and Power BI knowledge was at a competent level and ready to dive into some of the more advanced material that Leila provided.
I attended RADACADs “Advanced Analytics” course recently in Frankfurt in May 2017. Being a regular user of Power BI (with a science background ) the course was extremely helpful in showing me how to incorporate R data visualizations into Power BI dashboards and for introducing me to machine learning using the Microsoft ML Studio. Leila is an excellent and extremely knowledgeable instructor and explained complex data analytical concepts and methodologies in an easy-to-understand manner. I thoroughly recommend this course to anyone who wants to expand their data analytical skills and knowledge.
|I attended Reza’s Power BI pre-con “From Rookie to Rock star” at SQL Saturday Brisbane in May 2016. I was a complete Power BI novice, having only previously accomplished a few very basic things with Power BI. Reza took the group through all the components that make up environment. He explained how they had evolved and took the group through walk-throughs of each one. Reza was great an answering questions from the audience at the event and going into extra detail if necessary. All-in all, I would say that I’m now a very confident Power BI user after attending Reza’s pre-con.|
