My name is Steve Young and for the last 10 years I have been a consultant with Microsoft specializing in business intelligence, data visualization and the SQL data platform. For the 10 years previously, I was a consultant at 2 Microsoft partners, so, if you figure around 4 clients a year that is between 80 and 100 clients over that timeframe which makes it an incredible journey.
My Linked-In profile has a more detailed view of my experience, which is linked here.
Why the site?
The purpose of this site is to give back. I have learned so much from the community and various people throughout my career, that I really want to help others in this field or those just starting out.
The content is divided up into sections based on the subject of the article.
5 Minute BI
The articles in this category center around business intelligence and related topics. I liked the name 5 Minute BI as the content should be short enough to read in 5 minutes. The goal is to have concise, short, results-oriented content focusing on learning, how to, and training resources.
Power BI Field Guide
Content in this category geared around Power BI. I really like the tool for self-service BI and as a tool that anyone can use to generate data visualization solutions be it a single person or an enterprise-wide group of analysts.
I have always had a passion for data visualization and reporting as a discipline. This section has content that can be used in any product but may use Power BI or R as the display tool.
Book in Progress.
So, I am writing a book. Or will it be a white paper? As I finish sections I will post them here for comment. This will also serve as a log of my journey as a new writer.
