- [Voiceover] To begin with Power BI,…go to the Power BI site.…That's powerbi.microsoft.com.…When the site loads, there's information…about how Power BI works,…the ability to see it in action,…and lots of opportunities to get started for free.…Click on any one of them,…and you're offered the opportunity to begin…by using some of the pre-built content packs,…but we're going to work with Power BI Desktop.…
Click Download.…And you'll need to enter your work email address.…Click the Get Started button.…Notice that it's already downloading,…and it has determined the appropriate version…based on my version of Windows.…As it downloads, we have the ability to take a tour…here on the site and see what's available…through some videos,…or you can analyze sample sales data,…see your Facebook activity or create tables from the web.…
So some choices of activities that you can do…while you wait for this to download.…This looks like it's going to be quite a while…because I'm on a slow connection.…You don't need to wait while it downloads.…
