As a MS MVP one of the things you have to do is keep track of all the “things” you do for community, whether it be volunteering, organizing, speaking, etc. It can be a bit daunting trying to keep track of all of it. But hey, I’m a Data Platform MVP, how hard can it be to keep track of data?! Queue music from one of my favorite Blake Edwards movie .. Pink Panther.
At first I was just keeping track of everything in a text file via Notepad. That got very unmanageable very quickly with all the different kinds of things I was doing. I migrated all my data to a spreadsheet, because we all know that Excel is the most popular database in the world, right?
I knew that I had been busy in 2018, but I had no idea until I used Power BI to look at my data. Yes, I was significantly busier in 2018 than I ever had been and 2019 is shaping up to be just the same if not busier.
Take a look at what I created. It was a fun project to work on and allowed me to explore some things in Power BI that I don’t work with on a regular basis. Let me know what you think.
