Happy Birthday Power BI!

Author by Seth Bauer

They say that time flies when you’re having fun. And after this year I'd have to agree, I haven't had this much fun professionally ever. I can't believe how much Power BI has grown in a single year. The pace of innovation is rapid and constant, the Power BI Community is growing, and the excitement continues to build. Well done Power BI.

The time, dedication to excellence and execution is something the Power BI team should to be proud of. By my last rough count, there were over 500 features and updates in this past year across the Power BI product line.

So Happy Birthday Power BI, and may there be many more fun filled years to come!
