Announcing the Baton Rouge Power BI User Group

Baton Rouge is home to one of the inaugural Power BI User Groups, starting up soon! I'll be serving as its initial organizer, but I've already received a lot of feedback from the community and hope to form a new leadership team for the group soon.

Power BI is quickly becoming the hub for all things SQL Business Intelligence related, and will soon have both cloud-based and on-premise options. This exciting technology will continue to expand as SQL 2016 is announced. 

Stay tuned for more information on the official website and first meeting of the Power BI user group, which will be in either December or January. We already know that Baton Rouge native and current Microsoft employee Patrick Leblanc, founder of the Baton Rouge SQL Server User Group, will be our virtual speaker in January.
