BI’s visuals are intuitive, highly-polished and look great. They serve
many use-cases, but there are those who want to customise further. There
are options to go beyond this and some are more involved and
complicated than others.

Power BI has inbuilt R and Python
visuals that let users write code to produce bespoke visuals inside the
application. What if we used this idea to bring a new kind of custom
visual to Power BI that could use the concept of a visualisation
‘grammar’ to build them instead?

In this session we will explore
the concept of such a tool, and how we can use it to produce bespoke
visuals in Power BI, starting with taking the data we want to work with
and using a structural approach to quickly prototype and build a visual
as we explore it.

During his 17 year career across the UK and New
Zealand, Daniel has been helping drive enterprise-wide solutions
through process and software engineering; predominantly through Business
Intelligence (BI), data visualisation and software integration.

is extremely passionate about the Microsoft BI stack, particularly
Power BI, and has been delivering Power BI solutions since 2014. He is a
Microsoft Data Platform MVP, a contributor of free and open-source
custom visuals to the Power BI Marketplace, a Power BI Community Super
User and regularly presents and blogs on a variety of Power BI subjects.
