Complex Customer Cohort Retention Using PRODUCTX

Post by Rob Collie

First, a Few Quick Updates…

1) Just a reminder that enrollments are open for the live, in-person two-day classes taught by me (Rob) in Indianapolis and Washington DC (in October and November, respectively.)  Sign up now – those dates will be upon us sooner than we all realize!

2) The pre-order for DAX 2nd Edition is going Great!  Thanks to everyone who has pre-ordered and/or contributed.  PRE ORDER HERE if you have not already, and don’t forget the exclusive swag rewards like the sticker, poster, and t-shirt.

3) Ola Freaking Rosling is now using Power BI, and threw us a “shout-out!”  OMG, check out this tweet.  I nearly peed myself:


If you don’t recognize the name, his dad is Hans Rosling, the speaker in the first TED talk I ever watched:

…In which he did the animated bubble chart demo that I’m 100% positive was the inspiration for Amir Netz adding animated bubble charts in the next two product releases Smile

Here’s Ola and Hans co-presenting on the state of world health and social justice, via data of course:

A celebrity in that Google-y, Apple-y, Silicon Valley-y “doing good with data in the public interest” space using Power BI and saying that Power BI is awesome, and that he’d previously been scared off by all the anti-MS propaganda…  well that is simply awesome.

But I won’t lie – that he gave US a mention in that tweet – I *do* find that to be even cooler.  I’m human.  I can’t help it.  I smile every time I think about it.
