Power BI YouTube channels you should watch
If you were to look at my YouTube channel it would be an odd mishmash of painting, beards, crochet, history, maths, knitting, war gaming and more.
A spliced sample of the 200 strong list of channels I follow.
Buried in the list are useful nuggets - here are some of my favourites!
Avi Singh - PowerBIPro
Avi has a great on camera persona, but more importantly never assumes that you have any predetermined knowledge.
His videos include interviews, in depth analysis, real life data and data workshops!
Having just launched his own live service via a personal website, Avi is more accessible than ever. Check out his large backlog of videos and wealth of free training resources.
Ruth Pozuelo Martinez - Curbal
One of the most underrated channels in my opinion, Ruth is so methodical and clear with her approach.
On Mondays learn Power Query, Wednesday Power BI and Fridays a new DAX function!
With so many videos every week Ruth puts my Tuesday release schedule to shame! Even if you think you are a pro, she will show you something new.
Patrick & Adam - Guy in a Cube
The first Power BI channel that I subscribed to, and still the one that makes me most excited when the notification pops up.
Mondays feature interviews, Wednesday & Thursday feature tip videos and Saturdays are Q&A videos.
I've watched these videos when they just featured Adam. Then it was good, with Patrick it is great and with the new editing team? Amazing - even my wife watches!
Shane Young - PowerApps911
This is a little bit of a cheat since Shane has only done a handful of actual Power BI videos. However he has extensively covered the rest of the Power Platform, showing a breadth of coverage that the others lack.
While he has no official publishing schedule, two videos a week is fairly common.
Not only will you get some serious skills from watching Shane but you will also learn all about his dog, Chewy! Anyone reading this that wants to buy me the Chewy t-shirt?
Marco & Alberto - SQLBI
Averaging around 3 videos a week. Don't worry about fatigue, some videos are less than 5 minutes.
When I get questions about performance or the technical aspects of the Vertipaq engine, these are the videos I direct people to.
I would be failing to do my job if I didn't add two more onto this list!
Andrew Gould - Wise Owl Tutorials
Before I even heard the name of Wise Owl I had already watched many of the 500+ videos in their huge repertoire.
While there is no set release schedule, regular videos have been produced for the last 10 years!
There are no short videos; instead these are full length tutorials available to you for free. From C# to Power BI, if you need to learn it, Wise Owl cover it!
Wise Owl Shorts
The newest channel by far: at barely 1 month old this fledgling is still to take flight amongst the giants above.
We're releasing a new video every Tuesday, with the promise of increasing to two when things pick up!
Instead of the long form tutorials this is our venture into the world of entertaining short form videos, often answering people's questions. Show your support by giving us a subscribe!
